I am responsible of doing backups of 70 sites spread on 10 servers in five countries. In some I have two or more profiles. All of them with hostnine.com In all of them I want to exclude the same files and directories. Screen capture attached. Is it possible to export these patterns and import them into another site or profile? I am willing to remotely edit files and do SQL queries with PHPmyadmin

Off topic, what is the multipart JPA and JPS part file regex exclusion? #j0?$#i ? and the kickstart regex exclusion? #^kickstart#i ?

http://au.es/solodir/index.php?view=regexfsfilters&task=ajax&format=raw gives ###[]### as output after refreshing due to Ajax error caused by expired session editing Regex file and directory exclusion. That URL appeared when logging in again

Regarding broken PHP 5.5 I wrote the ticket to technical support on the weekend which meant it expired due to requiring attention on a weekday. I will submit it again. I will get back to you when they reply

When you export a backup profile on one site and import it to another these settings should be transferred too. Then it's a matter of reconfiguring the backup profile. Unfortunately due to the internal structure of this data it's not as simple as editing the database directly :(

I assume you want to exclude files in the root of your site (otherwise the patterns would cause some unintended issues with Akeeba Backup on the restored site). In this case the patterns are:
#\.j\d{1,}$#
#^kickstart#
You don't need the i (case insensitive) switch since the filenames you are matching are always lowercase. The first rule you wrote works up to 9 parts, my (untested!) rule should work beyond that. If you have less than ten parts use your regex, it's simpler.

Yeah, when the session expires you'll get things like that. Can't do much about it :/
