Back up dedicated linux server using putty
Posted on 2010-09-22
Can anyone explain the procedure to backup my linux dedicated server using putty remotely from my pc?
mkdir /backups; chkconfig portmap on; service portmap start; echo "backup server ip address:/backups/my server ip address /backups nfs rw,hard,intr,noexec,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nfsvers=3,noatime,_netdev 0 0" >> /etc/fstab; mount -a
I have used the above code to create the backup to a folder on a separate machine
but dont know how to do occasional backups.
any help would be appreciated
