    Backup Script needed

    Hi,

    can anyone recommend an easy to handle backups script, to backup a whole account ? it should just backup all and save it as gzip, tar or what ever....so that all the chmods are correct again after restoring the backup files.

    Do you know a script ?

    PS: Yes I know hotscripts, and yes I know shell

    Are you working with a control panel? Most all of them come with a backup function.

    That's extremely odd. I haven't used CPanel in quite a while, but I'd send in a ticket on that one.

    I have never used a backup script other than the ones built into DirectAdmin so I will be of little help here =/

    We use cPanel's backup on cPanel boxes and it works absolutely fine, I'd get one of the cPanel guys to check that out ...

    If you haven't got a panel however, I'd reccomend Veritas BackupExec - We started using it about a year ago and have so far been very impressed at the serious ease of management, esepcially with multiple servers ...

    Look at FlexBackup. Simple and free but very effective.
