    Howto Exclude Directories with Duplicity


    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to setup bash scripts to use cron to automate backups using duplicity v 0.6.19 on Xubuntu 12.10 and 13.04. I need to exclude some directories. The man page shows an --exclude option that would do exactly what I need. However, when I try to use this option, duplicity says no such option exists. Also, the command 'duplicity --help' doesn't show an --exclude option. In other words, the man page doesn't match the version of duplicity installed.

    How can I exclude directories with duplicity?

    Thanks.....

    hey,

    sounds like you need to figure out what version of duplicity you have installed. First off, how did you install it?

    try these command to see what you've got:

    Code:
    which duplicity
    whereis duplicity
    locate duplicity
    if you have multiple versions installed, perhaps you just need to uninstall the finicky/older version.

    fwiw, i have duplicity version 0.6.21 installed and it honors the --exclude option.
