regex support is limited to what is available in the c library for your
platform. Try man re_format for details.

Or you could move /var/www/dir1/html/webalizer to
/var/www/dir1-html-webalizer, and create a symlink from the former to
the latter? Make sure the direction of the symlink is correct,
otherwise you'll just be backing up a symlink, not the directory you
want to back up.
