Because all my work is stored on a remote server I would like to auto backup my server monthly and weekly. My server is running Centos 5.5 and while searching the web I'm found a tool named rsync. I got my first update manually by using this command in terminal:
sudo rsync -chavzP --stats USERNAME@IPADDRES: PATH_TO_BACKUP LOCAL_PATH_TO_BACKUP
I then prompt my password for that user and bob's my uncle.
This backups the necessary files from my remote server to my local device but does somebody know how I can automate this? Like automatic running this script every sunday?
I forgot to mention that I let direct admin backup the files I need and then copy those files from the remote server to a local server.
