Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have two SVN repositories, svn_rep1 and svn_rep2. I want to back them up to a remote server, with an incremental backup daily and a full backup monthly.

How I can write a bash shell script to do this operation? I ask you because I do not have time to search on my own.

I'd recommend rsync for 1-to-1-copies and duplicity for incremental encrypted backups.
