I have an account with bluehost.com, where I have one primary domain name and several add-on domains.

I did a Wordpress backup of the primary domain name. Something that I don't like is it backed up all add-on websites (domain names) too!

How can I just backup the primary domain?

Thanks!!!

You should exclude the folders containing the subdomains with the Files and Folders Exclusion option. If you are using a single database for all of your sites, you need to exclude the tables of the subdomains as well. A backup containing multiple sites can be a nightmare to restore.

Where can I find Files and Folders Exclusion option? Remember this is a Wordpress site.

Thanks!!!

Sometimes the names change for the buttons, so I checked my WordPress site before I replied. :-)

The Files and Folders Exclusion and the Tables Exclusion are both buttons on the Akeeba Backup Control Panel screen. If you don't see them, please make sure you have the Pro version installed, not the Core version.
