I've got a new MythTV box at home and figured it would be a great opportunity to use it to do daily mirrors of my mysqlbackup directory (let's say /mysqlbackup/backups) and my website at /usr/local/apache/htdocs and below.
I figured it would be a best practice NOT to use a root login but to create a user (say dhebackup). The Myth box would rsync in as that user.
I'm not 100% up on permissions (way lower!) so I'm wondering if I need to do anything permission-wise, group-wise, etc. to give the backup user access to those dirs and sub dirs only without affecting any of the other users (root, apache, etc) that would need access to those dirs.
Thanks for any pointers.
