Backup Solution

Backup Solution 2014-03-19

No permission to buy (£50.00)
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
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4.0K Feb 18 00:53 daily.2
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4.0K Feb 18 00:53 daily.3
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Feb 18 00:53 daily.4
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Feb 18 03:31 Databases

After suffering catastrophic failure and corruption on our server, Matt saved the lot but it also took our backups as I had no offsite backups sorted.
We arranged a date and time and Matt set up a new server we purchased and had the backups running in no time. We run incremental and daily backups and we feel a lot safer knowing that all is backed up.
Matt worked efficiently, quickly and thoroughly - as usual.
Once again I highly recommend Matt's services.
Thank you again.
