How to change Daily Backup directory?

I have a Confluence application running in linux redhat server. 


My new confluence is running in /data/confluence and /data/confluence-home directories 

Before this, I had my old confluence running in /my-data/confluence and /my-data/confluence-home


Please note that I change "/my-data/" to "/data"


I used my old data configuration files to install it in my new server and create new path.. 

which is /data/confluence. 


However, for some reason.. it keeps on creating daily backup files in /my-data instead of /data

I looked at almost all the configuration files and even at ADMIN page.. I can't find any path going into /my-data


I delete /my-data directory almost everyday.. but Confluence application is keep creating that directory and saves the daily backup files... 


is there a way to fix this problem?

Hi Young,

Did you check this doc article ?

You should be able to change the location of the backups through the admin UI

Yes I already tried that.. but everything is set to /data..
