Hi Experts.

My topology have:
 - some ftp servers that store our files
 - a central backup server
I want to use linux command (ex: rsync) to sync files from ftp server to the central backup server. Additionally, on the central server i need a web based application that can control the above backup process; manage user base on folder, ftp server (like a CMS with backup feature).

Please show me the open source application that can resolve the request.

Thank you

Create an ssh key on the originating machine.  

Copy the public key information and put that into the authorized_keys file on the destination machine.

Write a bash script that does an rsync:

     rsync -av -e ssh --delete-after /some/directory/of/files/  user@192.168.0.1:/destination/directory

Create a cron job to run on a regular schedule

If you need assistance with the entire piece, you will need to identify the account doing to rsync, the originating directories, the destination IP and the corresponding destination directories.
