If no backup path is given the controller tries to create a folder named backups 1 level below the web root. When this isn't possible a folder named backups is created in typo3temp. Make sure to secure this folder!

Additional config:

The following ENV variables can be used to define custom paths to the needed binaries:

path_tar_bin="/usr/bin/tar" path_mysqldump_bin="/usr/bin/mysqldump" path_mysql_bin="/usr/bin/mysql"
