You will be best off reading the manual.

Use this if the installation instructions are not clear enough.

if you want from server to pc
then use bellwo backup script with cron job

I am assuming, you have set up your backup server to logon to main server automaticaly by using RSYNC


#!/bin/bash
#Remote backup script - fosiul

DESTROOT="/home/workshop"
TODAY=`date '+%A'`


rsync -e ssh -avz --delete root@workshop:/public $DESTROOT/workshop
## use your own path

#Archive todays files
tar czvf $DESTROOT/archived/${TODAY}-workshop.tar.gz $DESTROOT/workshop > $DESTROOT/archived/${TODAY}-archived.log


in crontab -e

00 3 * * 1-5 /root/bin/wrokshopbackup.sh >/dev/null 2>&1


you need to give full permission to this backup script.

let me know if you need any explanation
