pigz for parallel process backup

Version 1.46

Feature
Finished

Support for pigz, which is used instead of gzip with tar, so it can create backups faster using more cores. Default internal directadmin.conf value is: pigz=0 to enable pigz, it must be install, and added to: /usr/local/bin/pigz /usr/local/bin/unpigz and then set the directadmin.conf to the number of cores (CustomBuild will set this for you when pigz is installed) pigz=4 for example, which would tell pigz to use 4 processes. If you use a value of 1, there is really no point in using this at all. CustomBuild 2.0 can install it for you: cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild ./build update ./build pigz
