I've been working to setup a Linux VPS to host a couple of Wordpress sites and eventually a Mercurial server.
I've setup one site and things have gone well. However, before I start moving other things to the VPS, I need to setup a backup solution.
My provider, Linode, suggest RSync (among a couple of other options) to do backups. I've seen a few posts on this site that suggests other backup solutions including going to the Amazon Cloud but that costs money and the VPS is all the money I want to spend on this for the time being.
So, to help solve that I want to have my backup computer be my home desktop computer.
Assuming I'm using RSync, is it possible to use my Vista based home computer to become the destination for the backup? And if it is possible, what type of command or connection would I need to configure on the vista machine?
Any insight would be helpful. It's probably obvious, but I've never used RSync.
Update: While I'm considering (and attempting to implement the previously given suggestions), I'm still interested in other (perhaps) non-rsync solutions. I don't want to restrict myself to that technology if there are others that might work.
