OpenSuse cloud backups
Posted on 2014-03-09
I have a client that has their online purchasing system database on an OpenSuse server. This is really annoying to me since I have zero experience with OpenSuse and really very little in anything Linux.
Anyways, my concern is if something were to go down, they don't have a backup of any of their database info. I have weeded my way through some things and found the system backup option in the YaST admin tools. The problem is that it just doesn't start when I tell it to. I set it for a certain time and that time just comes and goes with nothing happening.
My question is, can someone give me a very dumbed down explanation of how I can get a backup going on this? Am I missing something? Could you recommend a very easy cloud based system? It doesn't have to be free either....I just want to get this thing backed up!
