Backup process does not end

Hello,

There are 6 users on the panel and the backup process never ends. Disk usage is 16gb on the server, when I start the backup process, after 2-3 hours the disk space becomes 50gb and the backups are still not completed. I followed the steps you mentioned in another thread:

rm /usr/local/hestia/data/queue/backup.pipe
touch /usr/local/hestia/data/queue/backup.pipe
rm -rf /backup

Then I used v-backup-user abcbul for only one user instead of v-backup-users. Unfortunately the result didn’t change. The disk keeps swelling and no backup is created.

I think it retries for 5 minutes and does not complete.

root@admin:~# v-backup-user abcbul

So let’s solve the MySQL problem from the other thread first

I found the solution

skip-grant-tables which should be added to the bottom line

nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf

sudo service mysql restart 
sudo systemctl restart mysql

maybe a bit of a security issue, but it’s a worthwhile method to use for data recovery, I got help from GPT-3.5.
