Zip to Backup - Johann du Toit v0.0.1 ======================= Takes a List of configured directories. Zips them then uploads to a FTP Server. Deleting any Records older than a configured stale variable. Requirements ======================== Nothing Just Python :D Why? ======================== Was helping with providing backups to the Infrastructure and could not find a quick and small too to do this. So I wrote one. Nothing big, we run it every once a week through Windows Task Scheduler backupcfg.ini ======================== You can configure a bunch of options for the Script: [folders]: Any Folders listed under [folders] will be zipped. These can be networked files, local files, mounted drives anything just as long as you have access to it. For Example [folders] \\computer\myimportantfiles [ftp]: Configure FTP Details in this Section username: Your FTP Server's Username to login with password: Your FTP Server's Password for the Previous indicated Username host: Host address of your Server either. keep_for_months: After how many months is a zip seen as stale. Example Config File ------------------------ [folders] \\computer\myimportantfiles myotherfiles c:\Users\myuser\Documents [ftp] username=ftp_username password=ftp_password host=ftp_host keep_for_months = 2 ------------------------ Usage ======================== To run the Script just configure the .ini file, go to the directory of the script and use: python backup_to_ftp.py
