This is a script that maintains archive copies of backups taken with BackupPC.

It can be used to keep offsite backups to a remote location, for compliance to regulations or for disaster recovery.

This code is released under GPLv2, as is BackupPC itself. For more details, see the LICENSE file distributed with this code.


The backuppc-archive script runs as a service, and accepts standard service backuppc-archive start|stop|status|restart commands. You can copy the script directly in /etc/init.d/, enable the service with:

     chkconfig backuppc-archive on

...and start it with:

    service backuppc-archive start
