#8628 closed defect (fixed)

LuCI omits custom files for backup

Reported by: Stephan Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


I have some files in other locations than /etc which I want
to backup and keep them across a firmware update, but when
I create a backup it containes only files from /etc.
I have specified all files and directories under the custom files tab. The same is true for upgrading though LuCi instead of
running sysupgrade from CLI: files in other locations
are lost.

Also, although cosmetic, having LuCI include /etc/banner in the
backup causes a wrong version number beeing displayed on login
screen after restore.

Thanks a lot,
regards Stephan

Ah, this is because the custom file sysupgrade.conf saved by LUCI got garbage character M at the end of each line. Delete that character in console everything would be fine.
Sorry for forgetting to report that.
