OK, I apologize for not figuring this out on my own through the dozens of online sites and questions here as well...but I'm in a time crunch and don't want to break anything.
I need to backup a folder and all subfolders and files from one Linux server (Gentoo) to a Ubuntu box on the same network, preferably using rsync.
Here's what I need:
- Can someone supply me the steps to make sure the Ubuntu target box is ready to receive the rsync (permissions, etc.)?
- The rsync script itself. All I need it to do is sync to the target nightly everything in the source folder/subfolders/files with permissions, etc. Ideal would be 5 copies called Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday but I'm willing to live with a single copy that gets overwritten nightly (as long as the source doesn't change)
