    How to setup auto backup on Debian ?

    I got two identical hard disks, one uses to run everything other is for backup, how to setup automatic backup of website content and MySQL database? Thanks

    I think you should need a script to run daily, monthly and weekly backup using the mysqldump.

    I hope you got off-site backups as well in case both hard disks are somehow wiped out (such as in a hacking attempt, or extreme hardware failure, provider mistake, etc).

    use a cron script to automate mysqldump every day, as well as rsync these to soemwhere offsite every week or so, or just make them automatically email to a webmail account if its a small db
