xsibackup-free (11.0.1): on-success / on-error | Chained backup?

Regarding to the Documentation on-success and on-error are xsibackup-PRO features, but regarding to the new cron job they are included in xsibackup-FREE and can be used for chained backups.

I've tried to use the --on-success / --on-error switch but the chained backup didn't start.

Can someone explain if the features are included or not?

Best Regards,
Corvin

--on-success and --on-error event handlers are not available in the Free version.

Re: xsibackup-free (11.0.1): on-success / on-error | Chained backup?

does the ``xsibackup`` return true for ok and fail if backup not done ?
it can be combine with custom bash magic ( with && )...

The e-mail report, as well as the output contain any errors that might have been raised during the backup job.
