I have a CENTOS 6.3 Rackspace VPS, running the latest version of dropbox and using the dropbox.py command like tools. It is a webserver running WHM/cPanel
My problem is that my sever is only 512MB, and indexing all 80K+ files on my entire dropbox account is causing my server to crash.
I have gotten 2 emails from Rackspace which read:
Our monitoring systems have detected significant swapping on your Cloud Server. This server was experiencing out of memory errors and using the swap space partition for a significant period of time. As this escalated to a point that it was affecting other customers on your residing host server, we were forced to perform a hard reboot on your cloud server instance.
I am a web developer, and this is my test server. I also host a few client's sites on it, so keeping a backup of all of their sites/DBs is very important.
Currently, the way it backs up is by having an Alias to an external volume from my root's home directory. Then I RSync my public_html directory to the external volume.
I know that I can selectively sync using the dropbox.py tools, but I can only do this once dropbox has successfully indexed my machine. This, however, is problematic because my server crashes before this is done and it causes a problem for everyone else in my hosting block.
What I would like to do is to somehow sync only one folder to Dropbox, as it is only a few GBs. Does anyone know how I may do this, or a better alternative?
