I am currently needing to create a backup of something on my server. I zip the entire folder and it's about 1.5gb big...it has to be backed up every hour....
Alright so the size of the backup is getting bigger and bigger every day. So I need a way to backup better.
I'd like some suggestions on how to do this.
But what I was thinking was that every 3 days the third day backups are deleted. But one is kept.
This would mean that my backup total is 73.5gb after 3 days of backups. Then I want to keep that third day backup for 1 week. So on the 10th day it is deleted. So about 85gb of total data is backed up.
Ever hour for 2 days and then 1 hour from every day after that 8 times.
I was thinking the easiest way to do it would be move that 1 hour backup from the third day to a new folder and have a separate script for it that is run daily. However I am not sure how I would go about picking out one of them out from the others and how to delete the ones older than 2 days.
I would likely run these scripts as cronjobs and set them to daily.
I use centOS 64bit 5.7, any tips would be great....incremental backups are NOT an option.
Also, is there an easy way to sync my home PC to a website to download the newest file on there at a particular time? I want this for the backups. I've seen some nice php webpages where it makes a simple filemanager to download files from...perhaps something like this?
