This repo contains a set of utilities for making backup of config files and for setting up a new Alpine Linux computer.


Basic usage

  • To add a file or folder to be backed up, lbu include /path/to/foo
  • To remove a file from being backed up, lbu exclude /path/to/foo
  • To setup LBU options, edit /etc/lbu/lbu.conf
  • To create a package as specified in lbu.conf, lbu commit
  • To override destination of the backup package, lbu package /path/to/bar.apkovl.tar.gz

Setup scripts

The main script is called setup-alpine, and it will perform basic system setup. Each script can be called independently, for example:

  • setup-acf sets up ACF web interface
  • setup-ntp sets up NTP service
  • etc.
