      Description

      This tracker item is about the automatic course backup.

      Some Moodle installation can have very big courses, and one (administrator) could want to be able to not backup some courses and/or backup some courses without logs, when logs are selected to be backuped.

      Why ? Because (very) big courses can generate problems for automatic backups.

      So it would be good to add, on the automatic course backup setting page :

      • a text field, where admin could specify course IDs that should not be backuped
      • a text field, where admin could specify course IDs that should be backuped without logs

      The first field would take preference on the second one (if course is declared not to be backuped, it won't be backuped at all).

      These fields would allow a list of course IDs, separated by comma, and default to void (or course 1 for nologs). These separated lists could include spaces (that will be trimmed when doing automatic check of courses).

      You can have a look at this (related) discussion :
