#3368 chain reaction backup broken


I upgraded to 1.470 and now my "filesystem backup" doesn't respect the execute after command "enable after". for example i have 10 backup job. Only backup number one is scheduled at a time and date, the other take advantage of the enable after schedule. So backup number 2 starts when backup number 1 finishes, and backup number 3 starts after 2 finishes, ect... this stopped working in 1.470

    I just tested this, and it works fine for me. If you run one of the following backups manually, does it work OK?

    manually the do work, but only on the one you click on, it doesnt seem to follow the enable after schedule anymore (chain reaction) for lack of a better work.

    Let me know if yours obeys the "enable after" and jumps to the next task when finished. If yours does i will delete and recreate mine.
    thanks, i never imagined i would get a response this fast, thats amazing

    I just tested this with a scheduled backup, and it really work fine..

    Maybe im not remembering it correctly. i thought i use to be able to click on the top one, and just watch it jump from one job to the next in the status window (the window after you hit "save and backup now") but your right, it is working, i changed the schedule from once a month, to todays date, and it did indeed do it. Thanks for helping me, i have 90 backup jobs, re-creating them would have sucked :- ) Sorry if i remembered it wrong, i thought for sure it would start the chain reaction from just clicking backup on the 1st job. Anyway, all is good, this is a great product. i heavily use the "enable after" feature of the filesystem backup, so i really appreciate your quick replies. Webmin rocks.

    Im even using the "run command before" and "run command after" to map to other network computers and back them up via the admin shares, its great! I do get an error when the tar starts on a mapped drive that "the data has changed since..." but im not even going to bother you with the error, because its totally works, ive checked the data and all is good.

    anyway good work!!!

    Yes, the chaining only works when backups are run on schedule, not via the web UI..
