I am new to Linux so I apologize if the questions are stupid.
I have a Debian lenny web server complete with MySQL, dovecot, Postfix Apache, PHP5, etc.
It runs on a server in a datacenter so I have no physical access to the server. If disaster strikes, the datacenter will install a fresh debian lenny with SSH root access, nothing more!
However I can do a "hard" reboot of the server since the data center have a special control panel that can do that.
- How do I make a full backup?
- How do I do incremental backups to minimize bandwidth use (I get charged for bandwidth use)?
- How do I make a disaster recovery procedure so I can get all settings, packages, etc., from the backup?
