we want to backup our server and this seems to be pretty simple thing to do except one. Currently we use something like this:
tar cvpjf backup.tar.bz2 --exclude=/proc --exclude=/lost+found --exclude=/backup.tar.bz2 --exclude=/mnt --exclude=/sys /
Everything is fine, but we do not want to include mount points, as several ftp users has chrooted access to their homes with mounts like:
mount --bind /var/www/folder /home/user/html
Is the any way to exclude such folders from being backuped?
