SCRIPT: backup defined files/dirs to FTP-server


As a side note: this is just a thread part of my main thread which is destinated at securing debian!

This script backups files to a FTP server. On the FTP server it should be chrooted to some incomming directory. After the upload a managing script on the FTP server should move the data to a appropiate archive directory ...
Code:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
created ftp-backup script	     [ /usr/local/sbin/backup_ftp.sh ]
----------------------------------------------------------------------

#!/bin/sh

# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# purpose:	backup files defined in config file to ftp-server
# args:		1 = base name (config filename, backup filename)
# deps:		bash
# --------------------------------------------------------------------



# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# configuration
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
BACKUP_FILENAME="$1.tar.bz2"
CONFFILE="/etc/backup/$1.conf"
export PATH="/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin"
# --------------------------------------------------------------------



# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# backup data to ftp server
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
test -f $CONFFILE || exit 0
BACKUP_FILES=`cat $CONFFILE`

test -f etc/backup/ftp_details.conf || exit 0
. /etc/backup/ftp_details.conf


cd /
tar \
	-cf $BACKUP_FILENAME \
	-j -p --numeric-owner $BACKUP_FILES &> /dev/null


ftp -n $FTP_SERVER << EOF
user $FTP_USERNAME $FTP_PASSWORD
binary
put $BACKUP_FILENAME
chmod 600 $BACKUP_FILENAME
quit
EOF

rm $BACKUP_FILENAME
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
