CentOS 5.3 subverion 1.4.2
I am using rsync to backup a repository every day at midnight. We have about 30 repositories some small and some large.
I am using crontab to schedule the job that will run the script file.
The script will have to recursively go through each directory:
repos/DEV/ /repso1 /repso2 DOCS/ /repso3 etc
On the target machine I want to create a new directory with the date the backup was done.
backup/09OCT2010 /10OCT2010 /11OCT2010
So far I have been experimenting with this:
rsync -virza --backup --backup-dir=`date +%Y.%m.%d` firstname.lastname@example.org:test_repos/* source/backup
However, this will only do a incremental backup of the files changed. However, I want to do a full-back up with a new directory of the date that the backup was run.
Many thanks for any advice,
