Why aren't dot files such as '.master.meta' being transported with my backups?
The most common cause for this issue is that the remote backup destination uses FTP to transport the files and 'dot files' aren't enabled on the remote server. To enable this, different changes will need to be made based on the FTP server being used:
DisplayDotFiles yes is present in
ListOptions -a is present in
Once these have been added, the service will need to be restarted:
systemctl restart pure-ftpd
systemctl restart pro-ftpd
