I have a VPS configured with a webhost which I need to backup regularly. I have also purchased a 'backup disk' which is simply an NFS mount on another of their servers.
I have configured rsnapshot to run 4hourly | daily | weekly backups and another script to tar the backups into daily archives with logs.
My issue is that the NFS share is mounted with root_squash option, meaning that my files/dirs all have nobody:nobody permissions. This causes problems with my scripts in that rsnapshot regularly fails with "permission denied" errors when incrementally syncing the files/dirs .
Is there any workaround for this or does anybody recommend a better backup solution for regular incremental backups to an NFS share?
