I have a server with Virpus and another company, and I want to transfer all backups (nightly) to another backup server I have. I have set it up in WHM using FTP but, for some reason it just won't work.
I was hoping one of you could tell me how I go about setting up these backups using SSH so that they will automatically upload all backups of every account from server1, to server2?
It's worth making sure you've set up SSH key-based authentication too, to ensure that passwords don't need to be entered when performing the backups.
In addition, it's also worth considering whether you should jail your receiving account, and/or use a shell that only permits things such as scp and rsync. rsh and scponly are shells that I can recommend.
I don't think I've ever seen a tutorial covering the above two points, along with how to do simple rsyncs over SSH, so bear these in mind.
