    Question External Backup Script To Another Account/Server

    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a good, if possible, cheap or free, automatic backup script where if you have say "a reseller account or another account somewhere else" away from your dedicated server, you could install the backup script on the dedicated server to make automatic full backups of the web accounts, and transfer them all to another server or web account?

    Thanks

    Rsync and Cron. Efficient, fast, free.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I always wonder.

    How to actually restore the backup that we do using rsync?

    If FTP backup, I know it can be done using WHM.

    Rsync and SSH is your friend

    Take a look at this info page on rsync and ssh http://troy.jdmz.net/rsync/index.html it does also give info on automating the backups using cron.

    Hope this helps.
