comment Can't get rsync to work in daemon-over-ssh mode
I want to be able to do different read only backups of parts of the system - e.g. backup e-mail & SQL databases every day, but other things once a week. I would need a specific command and a specific key for each possible backup, and I wouldn't be able to do extra ad-hoc backups with the same infrastructure.

comment Can't get rsync to work in daemon-over-ssh mode
It was: rsync: unable to open configuration file "/etc/rsyncd.conf": No such file or directory (2) Thanks, that led to a solution, which I will post as an answer.

Why do you think there must be a quicker way? The way you've suggested is exactly what I would have done...
