Remote backup using ssh, tar and cron

Post date: April 13, 2005, 01:04 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 2882 Comments
Tutorial quote: Are you looking for a solution to backup your data to a remote location? While a solid backup solution such as Arkeia or TSM from IBM are nice from an enterprise point of view, simpler solutions are available from a home user's perspective. I will walk you through on you how you can backup your data to a remote server, using the default tools available on all linux systems. In a nutshell, we will use ssh capabilities to allow a cron job to transfer a tarball from you local machine to a remote machine.

For the purpose of this tutorial, the local machine will be called “localmachine” (running slackware) and the remote server will be called “remoteserver” (slackware as well). The user will be joe (me). You will have to substitute those 3 with your own machines names and user.

Tutorial quote: This document will describe the setup I made for automating the backup tasks for all laptops here in the house. My servers use the same backup server and infrastructure, but right now they don't have the checks and scripts because they are online 24/7 and my backup server is triggering the backup process. This is however not true at all for the laptops.

Laptops can be at different places, powered down, suspended, put to sleep etc. So I needed a different approach for them.
