I'm having trouble setting up rsnapshot to backup my files. I think I've done everything I need to but no backup seems to be created, although the log file claims the backup has been "completed successfully". Is there something obvious that I've missed? I've been following the rsnapshot HOWTO
I've placed a copy of my rsnapshot.conf file and a log file at the end of this message. I'm doing this as root and definitely have write privileges to the snapshot root directory. When I run rsnapshot rsync appears when I look at top.
I am using Fedora 7 on an i686. I installed rsnapshot from the repository today so it should be a recent version, although I can't seem to find the actual version number. If there is any further information I should provide please let me know.
Thank you for any help/advice. :-)
When I run
I definitely have tabs instead of spaces where needed.
When I run
mv /backedup/files_backup/daily.1/ /backedup/files_backup/daily.2/
/bin/cp -al /backedup/files_backup/daily.0 /backedup/files_backup/daily.1
/usr/bin/rsync -a --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded \
Here is my rsnapshot.config:
interval daily 7
interval weekly 4
interval monthly 3
backup /home/lion/home/files files_backup
Finally here is the log message from a run
