Exclude certain tables from the backups

Find out how you can exclude certain tables from the backups.

When creating backups for a MySQL database, you may need to have the possibility to exclude some tables. This can be useful if you have one or more tables containing not important data, such as logs.

1. Open the Weap.io dashboard and go to your database

Open the Weap.io dashboard, go to your database and hover the mouse on the database name. In the dropdown shown, click the option Configure backup options.

2. Choose which tables to exclude

In the modal just opened you have to select the option All tables except. In the input below the option, you must enter the names of the tables you want to exclude. If you want to exclude more than one table, enter the names comma separated.

Next, click Save. From now on, the selected tables will be excluded from future backups.
