In this article, I’ll introduce summary The RegEx Database Tables Exclusion In Akeeba Backup.

Note: This feature is available only in Akeeba Backup Professional, the paid version of our component.

RegEx Database Tables Exclusion

This page primarily consists of a grid view. Above the grid, you can find the Root Directory drop-down menu. Akeeba Backup can define filters for the site’s main database or for each of the extra databases you may have defined.

The grid contains three columns:

  • Icons column: You can perform the basic operations by clicking on this column’s icons:
  1. Add: Clicking this icon adds a new row at the end of the list and switches it to edit mode. You can select the type of the newly added filter.
  2. Pencil: When you click it, the row switches to edit mode.
  3. Trashcan: When you click it, the filter row will be removed.
  • TypeThe filter type defines what will happen when a directory or file matches the regex filter and can be one of:
  1. Exclude a table: Completely skips backing up tables whose names match the regular expression.
  2. Do not backup a table’s contents: Only backs up the structure of tables whose names match the regular expression, but not their contents.
  • Filter ItemThis is the actual regular expression you have to write.

RegEx Database Tables Exclusion – Edit Mode

The icon column now contains two different icons:

  • Diskette: When you click it, the changes will be saved.
  • Cancel: When you click it, any changes will be cancelled and the row will resume its previous state.

In order to make sure that your filters match the directories and/or files you meant to, you can do so very easily. Just go back to the Control Panel and click on the Database Tables Exclusion button.
