I want to backup my database on a daily basis. i did following setup in my magento admin panel. https://prnt.sc/odgzhv But no backups are generated in magento/var/backups folder. Is there any thing else need to be done? I monitored for 2 days but no backups are generated.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance..!

  • Remove all records from "cron_schedule" table and run "php bin/magento cron:run" command fusing ssh then reindex and flush cache and check cron status in "cron_schedule" table. Jul 11, 2019 at 9:57

The Magento backup feature is disabled by default. To enable, enter the following CLI command:

bin/magento config:set system/backup/functionality_enabled 1
