Good evening, it's the first time I use your software and I want to congratulate you because it's the fastest of all, but I'm finding a big problem in making the backup. I've always used software manager and I've never had problems but with openpli it doesn't work. i have 2 decoders arm a zgemma h9 and a h7.
H9 I always made a full backup with software manager that took about a minute and instead on h7 I always made the backup recovery to make it complete but I'm not succeeding with any of the 2. I save only the data and the folders then to pass the backup in another decoder I must first put the original software and then pass all the data. I'm not managing to find a guide on the net. can you please help me? I'd like to make the backup as you do it all directly in a disk.img file.

OpenPLi doesn't have a full backup option built-in (as in a backup that produces an image file you can flash again). But there are plugins that can do that.

 

We believe it is (for virtually all users) pointless making a full backup, as all you need is your configuration, the rest can be restored by flashing the image again. You can find "Autobackup" in the setup menu, which provides exactly that. If you flash OpenPLi and an "autobackup" backup is found, on disk or on a USB disk, you are automatically prompted to restore it when the box boots after the flash.

No other image integrates an option for full backup, and it is always necessary to download a secondary plug-in, often in order to get a complete backup. On your server you have "backusuite" a plug-in that works for this purpose and that works properly. with other boxes that are not (ARM) .. You say that you need to download a non-integrated plug, and then a third party, but I don't think you are making it available and you don't even say what it would be. I seem to understand that your image is an "opensource" or maybe you want to make it become a paid service, as do some other teams that stupidly sell the image with integrated and armored modules? .. I'm using your image for the reason the friend wrote, but these are your intentions, abandonment immediately!

I have no idea what you are on about, and what I said to deserve a response in that tone. It looks like you didn't understand a word I wrote.

I believe I have not offended you in the first person, then by this impression, I apologize .. I believe that if a user asks a specific question on a forum he deserves a concrete answer and does not wander ... the question was clear and yes talk about backup, you can't answer that only some users need this option, you could have written that you don't know but that there would be this other option or that you know and explain it, so you have closed all hope to a new user looks at a new image and even specified it ... this is the official openpli forum or am I wrong?

It was the users first post, so I made the assumption it was a novice OpenPLi user. I have no information on his/her history, nor why the users feels a full backup is neccesary.

 

I merely stated that, in our opinion, there is virtually never a need for a full backup. So if the user just wants a a backup, a full backup, no matter with whatever tool, is the wrong suggestion.

 

Users that really do require a full backup generally tend to install lots of non-standard stuff, and those users are knowledgable enough to find and install the appropriate plugin without asking.

 

Yes, my assumption might be wrong, but in that case that is for the TS to say, and not for you.

Even the 1st paragraph is wrong ..... most images offer a full image backup

Thanks for giving me a beginner, for me it's not an offense. I wrote that I have always worked with other images and now I have tried the OpenPli and I like it because it's faster. can you please explain to me how to make a full backup? because I tried with all the plugins that you make available.
Thank you
