Elastix PBX Automatic FTP Backup

Hello all-

I am primarily used to the FreePBX interface, where you can configure daily PBX backups to an FTP server. However with Elastix, it looks like the built in backup/restore funtcions are a little different. You can set daily backups, but they are local backups to the PBX. You manually have to go in and drag and drop your local backups to your designated FTP server.

Is there anyway to automate this process so we don't need to worry about backups filling up the disk on the PBX and configure daily backups of an Elastix PBX to a remote FTP location?

I would suggest you write a script that moves the backups between servers and removes the older ones as appropriate.   May do an MD5 hash on both and make sure they agree before dumping you original.  

Once the script is written and working the way you want then add it to cron to run say an hour after the backup does.

An always manually verify your backups every so often..
