What happens to CustomBuild 2.0 state when an admin backup/transfer/restore is done? Does it handle all your PHP, Exim, Apache, etc. build settings when doing the restore? Or is that something that is manually done before or after a restore takes place?

Custombuild is part of the system its in /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild

Dont think of the Admin backup as a system backup its more like a user backup.



the system backup is here its seperate
2) The other backup system is:
Admin Level -> System Backup

this is an interface to the "sysbk" backup script (we didn't write sysbk)
The System Backup will backup all data including config files for services (like the /etc/exim.conf, directadmin.conf etc...) which are not part of the DA backup.
This tool can also be customized to add/remove paths that you would like.
However, this tool does not have a 1 click restore option.
Each tar.gz that it creates must be restored manually with the tar command.

Okay, thanks for the emphasize on the difference between the backups.

Is it documented anywhere what happens when a user restore setting conflicts with a new server setting? Ideally the two environments would be setup the same, but say, one had IPv6 configured, while the other doesn't.
