Hi,

I try to compress and exclude folder uploads. Seems to exclude not working or i miss something.

Using code below ( under /home/user)
CODE
tar -cvzf nama.tar.gz public_html/ --exclude='/home/myuser/public_html/wp-content/uploads/'


Please advise.

Thanks.

Using this also still include the uploads folder.
CODE
tar -cvzf nama.tar.gz --exclude='/home/myuser/public_html/wp-content/uploads' public_html/

Not all tutorial in internet is correct. Sometimes the writer writing without test. Now getting correct command line.
CODE
tar -cvzf nama.tar.gz --exclude wp-content/uploads public_html


p/s: Don't believe what you see

I tried this and it works:

CODE
$ tar -cvzf nama.tar.gz --exclude="public_html/wp-content/uploads" public_html

If you have the hardware to support it, (and the data size big enough) zstd is worth it.
CODE
time tar cvf - --exclude="public_html/wp-content/uploads" public_html | zstd -19 -T24 > nama.tar.zst


CODE
$ time tar cf - go | zstd -19 --long -T24 > go.tar.zst

real    1m7.072s
user    19m49.057s
sys     0m4.560s
$ time tar czf go.tar.gz go

real    1m11.312s
user    1m10.819s
sys     0m2.665s
$ time tar cf - go | xz -9 -e > go.tar.xz

real    18m5.242s
user    18m4.260s
sys     0m9.174s
$ du -sh go go.tar.gz go.tar.zst go.tar.xz
3.2G    go
1.1G    go.tar.gz
584M    go.tar.zst
573M    go.tar.xz


Faster (wall clock), and better compression.
xz is smaller, but takes 18x the time.
