This is a no-brainer, and the DirectAdmin devs have been sleeping on this for way too long... probably one of the MOST important features for any webadmin control panel.

Even the current suggested backup scripts are all outta whack... Why isn't the date appended by default?


And why isn't the remote backup script have the above backup date append as part of this? (forcing the users to figure out how to combine these 2 scripts themselves?)


The whole point of any webadmin control panel is to automate these fundamental tasks... (what's more fundamental than proper backups? why force the user to manually delete old backups? this defeats the entire automation aspect)

Doubt this will happen, Cause it will torpedo certain overpriced plugin pirates.

But yea +1
This shouldn't be a plugin for remote SSH/SFTP server backups... the functionality is static; well established.

However, for paid plugins for 3rd party cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, etc--as the API aspect would be more foreign than basic sysadmin knowledge-- this would be understandable.

With old (default/enhanced) skin all works.
