CentOS 5 :: Backup Script With TAR - Incremental Backup With Simple FTP To Another Location And Email Status

Jan 15, 2010

After I spent some time discovering The BIG BANG of Universe and The Meaning of Life :

I managed somehow to create a script to make some backup of files on server and TAR it and then FTP the archive to another location FTP server and then emails result.

It also measures time needed to complete it and deletes archive older than XX days (set in find -mtime +20) and makes incremental backup every weekday and FULL on Sundays (which suits me bcoz no heavy load).

Files for TAR to include and exclude are in txt files listed each line separate name:

file: including.txt:

Ubuntu :: Rsync Like Incremental Backup

Oct 20, 2010

when rsync is finished the update, or in the meantime - i need to move the updated files to a different location - like date +%Y%m%d something or what ..the reason is, because of the development, i need the modified files, but all of them, not just the last one - so i have to store them daily, but i dont want to store the whole dir - just that few files which are updated does it make sense?

Debian :: Incremental Encyrpted Local Backup Utility?

Sep 17, 2010

I want to backup data and upload to online hosting services.Since I'm uploading stuff online, I only want to upload encrypted data (so that even the hostiing service admins cannot look at the data).Thus, I first want to encyrpt my data locally that I want to backup. Since I will be making changes locally to the data, I want some sort of incremental imaging system where the incremental changes are stored in seperate files so that I only have to upload the incremental encrypted changes.

Duplicity is an option, but it uses GPG, which makes it a bit complicated; and I was wondering if there was any alternative which was simpler as I am only doing the encryption and backup locally.

Ubuntu Servers :: MySQL Incremental Backup - Binary Log File Names

Mar 15, 2011

I am currently using a script to backup my Ubuntu 10.04.1 system. The mySQL databases are backed up separately from the the system / data.

My problem is with the mySQL incremental / binary log backups.

The problem is that the binary log file(s) are always named xxxx-bin.1.

Up to about a month ago the binary logs were named xxxx-bin.000001, xxxx-bin.000002, etc.

I did make some changes at about the time that this change in file naming ocurred, but I can not identify what, if any, setting I may have changed that has caused all of the binary log files to always have the same name.

My back up script uses both mysqldump and mysqladmin flush-logs to create the binary logs.

All of the setting for mysqldump and mysqladmin are contained in the my.cnf file.

The my.cnf file contents that are relavent are as follows:


The statements in the backup script that do the backup are:

mysqladmin flush-logs


mysqldump | gzip > $DB_BACKUP_DIR/$ARCHIVE_FILE #Note: delete-master-logs in my.cnf

Software :: Incremental Encrypted Local Backup Utility Alternative To Duplicity?

Aug 10, 2010

I want to backup data and upload to online hosting services. I first want to encyrpt my data locally that I want to backup. Since I will be making changes locally to the data, I want some sort of incremental imaging system where the incremental changes are stored in seperate files so that I only have to upload the incremental encrypted changes. Duplicity is an option, but it uses GPG, which makes it a bit complicated; and I was wondering if there was any alternative which was simpler as I am only doing the encryption and backup locally.

EDIT:I have only ONE computer on which the data resides, and on which the backup image image is made. That is, I have a directory foo on my computer, the backup of which will be made to back-foo on the same computer. I want back-foo to be in an encypted form Then back-foo will be uploaded (unencrypted) to microsft live storage or to spideroak storage etc. Since back-foo is encrypted, my upload is secure. And since I'm uploading, I want incremental backup support, that is, the backup utility should create new files which contain the incremental changes so that I can upload only the new files which contain the changes.

When i run this manually it works fine but when i run it from my ROOT user in Plesk as a cron task is always creates a file that is just 45 bytes. Why doesn't it work... I am running it as a root user.. so surely i must have permission to access the file?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Simple Backup HD Including All Files?

Feb 20, 2010

I am somewhat new to Linux and I am looking for a way to back up my HD with all my Linux files. I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7. The HD has been partitioned so that the computer can run Red Hat Scientific Linux. Using Grub I can dual boot to either Windows 7 or Linux on start up. I want a simple way of backing up the entire contents of my HD (both partitions - everything) - so that in the event of my laptop being damaged I can reconstruct my set up and data as before with all my files and settings in both Windows 7 and Linux intact. Is there a simple program that will enable me to copy everything to an external HD for back up. Can anyone recommend a package that will do this?

Ubuntu :: Simple Backup Restore Doesn't Work

May 16, 2011

Here's what I want to do: Copy the whole Ubuntu 10.04 partition/installation from my old laptop to the new one.

What I tried: Used Simple backup to back up my Ubuntu installation to a USB hard drive. It yields a 10.4 gig folder containing 7 files. Installed 10.04 on the new laptop, used Synaptic to install Simple Backup, plugged in USB drive, started Simple Backup Restore, tagged the backup directory in Simple Backup Restore, and get the error:

Error: no backups found in the target directory.

I also tried copying the backup to the local drive, same difference.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Simple Backup Folder From Trash

Jul 17, 2010

I'm a beginner at backing up my Ubuntu system, but I've set Simple Backup to do a backup once a week. I deleted the oldest of these files, but now it's sitting in my Trash and I can't empty it. I get a permission denied error for the folders within the backup folder in the trash, yet I can't restore the folder either - Ubuntu says it 'failed to determine the original path' for the folder. I've just discovered this in Xubuntu Jaunty, but I'm confident the same will happen in any other WM I choose (I have several installed - I like variety ).

It's not a huge file, but it's hanging out there and I'd like to get it either deleted or restored. Possibly I oughtn't to have deleted it in the first place (it usually lives in /var/backup, which I can't access except as root). The files, which I probably deleted /as/ root, show up in my user trash rather than root's trash. I found the trash in ~/.local/share/Trash/files, but I'm not sure if just deleting them as root would be a good.

I see where the location of the source repository is, but I don't see anything in documentation as to where the actual dump file is located. I need to know where the dump file is so I can scp or rsync the file to another server for backup.
