How to run rsnapshot to backup home directory?


I have installed rsnapshot from slackbuilds.
rsnapshot.conf
Code:
config_version  1.2
snapshot_root   /.snapshots/
cmd_rm      /usr/bin/rm
cmd_rsync   /usr/bin/rsync
cmd_logger  /usr/bin/logger
interval    hourly  6
interval    daily   7
interval    weekly  4
verbose     2
loglevel    3
lockfile    /var/run/rsnapshot.pid
backup  /home/      localhost/
How to run it to backup home directory?
I'm also reading the official docs.

You could check out http://rsnapshot.org/howto/1.2/rsnapshot-HOWTO.en.html.

Did you set up your configuration and then try `rsnapshot configtest`?

Then you can do it one time as you indicated in your second post, or you can automate it as in step 5 of the HOWTO linked above.

Perhaps these two articles will help you a bit (I am using them myself right now as a reference to re-install my rsnapshot server after its OS disk died... mighty glad now that I wrote it down back then):
