Feature summary

Product details

Using a VPS from Backupsy (see my review here),set up a backup solution for your site.

All you will need to do is choose the size and location of your VPS, and I'll do the rest.

  • Install and secure the OS on your backup VPS (CentOS / Ubuntu / Debian)
  • Configure SSH keys to allow the backup VPS to connect to your main server
  • Install and configure RSNAPSHOT to perform the incremental backups of the directories you want backing up, along with the retention schedule.
  • Setup a script to export and backup your databases
My own working example:
Code:
root@backupsy:/backup# ls -hl
total 40K
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4.0K Feb 18 00:52 daily.0
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4.0K Feb 18 00:52 daily.1
