I have set up a cron job in Site A that FTP transfer .jpa backup file to Site B every day. In Site B I have setup UNiTE. However I want to ask how do I get UNiTE to pull latest .jpa file in <siteInfo><package> tag? Because jpa file name has date and timestamp as filename site-localhost-20191016-161005+08.jpa. Right now I need to write exact jpa filename.

Hope hear from you. Tq.

Akeeba UNiTE can only take and download a backup. It cannot download the latest backup archive of a backup previously taken.

You need to use Akeeba Remote CLI to download the backup archive locally. You can rename it to a predictable name and use that name in your UNiTE XML configuration.

Since these are two separate commands you can put them together in a script file and execute the script file instead.

Thank you.

from your advise I have created a bash script to fetch the latest .jpa for UNiTE to use to restore the site.
