hello there,
I currently use this command to sync my site with my backup server.
I removed some files and I am wondering if by using this the files in the backup server will be deleted too..

rsync -azrtlpog -e ssh /home/virtual/sites/site.com root@74.86.98.12:/backup/sites/

No, they won't.

Deleting extraneous files from dest dirs must be forced by using one of the "--delete" options (see below).

By the way, the option "-a" already includes the options "-rtlpog" so there's no need to specify them explicitly.


      --del                            an alias for --delete-during
     --delete                       delete extraneous files from dest dirs
     --delete-before        receiver deletes before xfer, not during
     --delete-during        receiver deletes during the transfer
     --delete-delay          find deletions during, delete after
     --delete-after           receiver deletes after transfer, not during

Here's the command to use.

rsync -az -e ssh --delete  /home/virtual/sites/site.com root@74.86.98.12:/backup/sites/
