gutbackup, the simplest rsync wrapper for backup Linux system
Mount backup USB drive to /backup $ mkdir -p /backup/conf/hello $ vi /backup/conf/hello/default backup_options="-aP" files=" /etc/fstab /etc/mtab " $ gutbackup backup hello -- --dry-run > rsync --files-from /tmp/files.gutbackup -aP --dry-run / /backup/hello/
That's it, as you can see, it just build a rsync command using options from
/backup/conf/hello/default bash file.
Backup to another location
$ gutbackup backup hello -to /tmp/backup > backup to /tmp/backup > read conf from /tmp/backup/conf/hello/default
Backup to another location with another conf directory
$ gutbackup backup hello -to /tmp/backup -conf /etc/backup > backup to /tmp/backup > read conf from /etc/backup/hello/default
You can provide options in four locations, later one override the previous. They are just plain bash files.
# edit /etc/gutbackup.conf from="/" to="/backup" conf="$to/conf" # edit /backup/conf/hello.conf backup_options="-aP" # edit /backup/conf/hello/default files="/etc/fstab" # edit /backup/conf/hello/data files="/root" # cmdline $ gutbackup backup <profile> [instance] [options] -- [rsync-options] $ gutbackup backup hello # if you omit the instance, it's "default". $ gutbackup backup hello data -from / -to /backup -conf /backup/conf -- --dry-run
# sytemctl enable email@example.com By default, it runs daily, you can change it by # systemctl edit firstname.lastname@example.org [Timer] OnCalendar=weekly Read more at $ man systemd.timer
