TKLBAM include directory, exclude contents

spudse's picture

I have a few log directories that need to exists with the correct permissions for my lamp server to work. 

I would like to include the directories, but exclude the files that are stored inside the directories. Is this possible?

Also, is it possible to exclude files based on wild cards, like "-/var/logs/*.mylog"?

Thanks, Koen

I'm not sure about wildcards??

I guess there's probably only one way to be sure - test em out!

As for your other plan. I guess you could do that, but wouldn't it be easier to just recreate the folder post restore using TKLBAM hooks? You should also be able to set permissions that way too.
