Optionally stop the web app while backing up
Some of my web apps have embedded databases that block the files they use. That prevents the backup from storing them (well, it actually stores a 0 byte file instead). This is not a big handicap if I make the backups manually, because I know the issue and I stop the web apps manually, but if I want to automate the backup I can't because almost always these files are locked...
One possible solution would be to add an option in the backup configuration to stop the web app before running and start it again after it has finished.
Thanks for the suggestion, we are reviewing the ask and will keep the post updated.
