backups using rsync

Posted 05-09-2011 at 08:44 AM by neonsignal
Updated 05-09-2011 at 08:46 AM by neonsignal

The beauty of using rsync as a backup tool is that the backup is in a plain old directory structure, so there is a lot less to go wrong in a recovery process (and many ways to do the recovery).

The simplest rsync just makes a mirror of a directory structure:
Code:
rsync -a --del src dst
Or across a network using ssh:
Code:
rsync -a --del src server:dst -e ssh
The link-dest flag can be used to set up a simple snapshot...

remote shell access

Posted 05-08-2011 at 07:03 AM by neonsignal

Remote (and secure) access to another system makes use of the ssh package.

At its simplest, this provides secure copying from one machine to an account on another remote machine:
Code:
scp file user@remote_machine:~
Login to the other machine can be automated by creating a private/public key pair to sign the access. The public key is added to the authorized keys of the destination account. The private key must be kept secure.

Make http://screenshots.debian.net/ better

Posted 05-07-2011 at 11:33 AM by alan_ri (Thoughts and other things about Linux, GNU, FOSS etc.)

As one can see on the site there are at this very moment;

[B]3256 screenshots online[/B]

But the fact is there are almost 30000 Debian packages out there, which suggest that there are many screenshots missing. Screenshots are very useful in Synaptic Package Manager for example, because it can obviously give you a picture of what you want to install. The process of uploading a screenshot is simple as it can be, so help make Debian better by uploading screnshots of some apps...
