Using rsnapshot to make a system backup


I just setup rsnapshot to make periodic backups of my slackware install and transfer through ssh incase of a catastrophic disk failure. Since i'm not real confident i'm getting everything i need - i wanted to check with you guys to make sure the following directories *should* include everything i need.

/home
/etc
/usr/local

I'm running what i consider to be a typical slackware install (10.0) and primarily using the machine for a LAMP server. All personal files are held in the home directory. Just looking for advice as i'm sorta a Linux newb.

Thanks,

- RJ

If it's a webserver you might want to save /var/www/htdocs
