I've lost files and directories from my system as I did a full (or so I thought) backup using psadump, and when I've restored it after wiping the system, there's various files and folders underneath the vhosts tree that are missing. Basically it would appear that anything that doesn't have exactly the right set of permissions or something that's added using a system login isn't backed up. I've lost shell scripts that I use to run my site, I've lost customer data that they've put up using FTP. This is totally and utterly freaking unacceptable. psadump never warned me of things it couldn't backup, it said everything went fine. psarestore said the same thing too. What am I suppose to tell my customers? So the moral of the story is, don't use psadump and psarestore by the looks of it. I'd have been better off using tar and just archiving up the database directory.
