i didnt mention that this is webserver
well as you can tell webservers enviroment are changing after some time, if i make backup of my entire partition theen after month restore i will have old data, so in this case i just want to print attribs/owning so i can restore only this.
But anyway, since there been talking about image method, can i ask you better to tar entire system or use that image?. If for example something went down for good and quickly need to restore everything - and all stuff has to work wich method is better?
If as you say Image, - can you write down some newb walkthru?
I have recovery console i think it will be ok to do with it?
