No Sorry

Im Complicating it.

Our host will configure a backup for us but their storage space is too expensive, we are looking for a cheaper alternative to store files online and our host has requested scp access and sshkey communications as requirements of the server space.

ok so you want to backup data from host server to any cheaper online storage  ??

1.if its right, then can you access your host server by using ssh ??
2. if you have linux box in your organization , and if you have internet line, then why are you not backing up your own data ??( like we are doing ) just let the back up at night , by the morning it will complete

I use their bingodisk services, their service support is excellent and the cost is reasonable.

That does make sense, we run macs in our studios and do indeed have an internet conection.

Our host was proposing writing a script on their server which backups databases and www files to another location, im assuming that location could be our studios.

We run macs so what would be required our end, and what info would we need to give our host??

Ok

let me tell you how I am doing this

like we have webserver : server1  ( which is running linux)

and we have a server in our company server2 ( which is running linux)

we have a script which will download all the file from SErver 1 to server 2

so we are downloading file from SErever 1 ( www ) to your internal server

and we are uisng RSYNc -> what it does is, initally it will download all file, then every day, it will check what files has been modified and then download the modified files only, so first time when you will run the backup script it will take time but after that it would be quicker depending how many files has been modified.


now you are saying : your host will write a script in their server  which will backup from their server to another server, which i am little bit of confused, because i never used this concept.
as i said, i used script which will download from host to our server.


what server are using for hosting ?? linux or windows ??

We are using a linux server.

Our local network can have a unique ip and we would like to be able to download from our web server.

Will rSync be suitable for us?

Thanks
