That's something that needs to be looked into. I tell apache to switch to a maintenance-page which is on a filesystem that doesn't get umounted. Then I umount the websites for the backup. The changes to the script would require more work. If openrc stays with a classical init, then I will be happy. Systemd is nice for desktops. And systemctl will try to remount the filesystem when simply using umount: user/msg_0883f3103a3fa025cc2121117169a287.xml -- Joost
