change location of server repository?

    I'm using the backup manager to keep copies of client's configurations and files. However, I would like these to be stored on an external hard drive. How do I change the location of the "Server Repository" so the backups will not be kept on the main drive.

    The location of root backup directory is stored in file /etc/psa/psa.conf and set by variable DUMP_D as before:

    # Backups directory
    DUMP_D /var/lib/psa/dumps

    Server backups, backups of resellers, clients, domains and daily MySQL dumps are stored in this directory.

    ~# ls -l $DUMP_D
    total 632
    -rw-r----- 1 root root 56437 Dec 1 15:06 backup_info_0812010906.xml

    So try to change the DUMP_D parameter at /etc/psa/psa.conf.
