i am searching a way to backup a server (running apache2 & ssh only). i would like something better from a simple tar backup... I would like to backup the whole hdd in a way so if it crash , i get a new hard disk, i copy the image to the hard disk it i get the server running back (theoritically) with the minimum effort!
Can i do it using dd? I copy the hdd but is possible to copy later the image to the new (probably) bigger hard disk and then resize the partitions?
Is possible to do something like this?
Can i achieve this somehow?
