Fstab info -> where to save my data

Hello,

I rent a virtual ubuntu server. In the specification is written that I have 2 hard drives.

In the fstab I can see:

 fstab
I want to save MySql data every day to the other hard drive. So if Mysql is on the first hard drive, I want to save it to the second.

How can I get this information? (which drive Mysql is stored on, which folder to copy).

Do I need to do addition modification in fstab?

Thank you

It looks like your drives are in a RAID array (/dev/mdx points to RAID). so your 2 are already being used for the complete system.

Should I write then to the technical support of the company?

Why? Using RAID 1 is better than not using RAID. It gives you some protection against a disk failure (that doesn't mean you don't have to run backups though). If you want to have the database on other drives you should add another 2 drives and set those up in a 2nd RAID 1 array (for that you would of course have to consult the hosting company).

This server is far away from me - in fact it is in another country.

So assuming that it's in Raid, is it indifferent which folder I save the daily MySql backup files into?

Any backup should be saved to some external device, if you don't have physical access to the server then to a location on another server somewhere else for instance. But normally in such a setup your hoster will also be doing backups...
