I am running my own server that hosts a few websites and services. My problem now is that I need to have some sort of a backup solution in case old Murphy should decide to knock on my door. First, I whipped out my old RedHat 7,3 Bible and read about backups there. I want to have a corned job that simply mirrors my hdd to another disc on scheduled times (preferably incremental) over say a week. The RH Bible suggested I use a program called mirrordir that supposedly could be found at mirrordir.sourceforge.net. Unfortunately, SF does no longer host that project by the looks of it. The URL is dead and searching Sourceforges website produces no results to indicate a difference. So...
Which would you say is the best sollution to my dilemma? Is there some other great programs out there to perform the task that I wish to do or could one simply use a tar, shell script, corn sollution that doesnt need a dedicated program? I would ideally want to have a solution where I could simply swap the discs and be up and running again in case something goes pearshaped. I have had a brief look at software RAIDS but it all seem very complicated and a bit over the top for myself.
Any suggestions are very much appreciated!
