Backing up Linux to a remote server!
For 3 hours im searching for this answer and came across this website. Which Im glad to cause im a newb to linux and prefer it over any O/S so I might frequent this board a lot.
Dont flame me as I dont really know where to post this since Im new here
Here is what i'm looking for...
I want to backup the entire server, onto another server. Files, Configurations, Email, SQL Databases, EVERYTHING basically take an image of the current drive, and upload it to another server.
My client asked me if I could make a script that would do just this but he wants it to shut down current processes, create an archive of the backup, taring and gziping everything, so when you unzip, it would unzip back to its original state, and upload it to a remote server, and set this up as a cron job. I think he's asked the impossible as I cant really think of a way to make a shell script that would disable any current processes, and start the backup. The archive used for backup, id prefer tar.gz
Any help would be SOO greatly appreciated as Im exhausted looking for the answer.
