It would be nice if I could choose "Tools\Backups..."
and a dialog could open for me to assign how often I
want my website pages to be backed up to some other
location on my system, such as /media/USBDRIVE (an
attached USB drive), /mnt/NTSERVER (a mounted NFS
connection), /home/webs (another place on my hard
All this would do is edit a shell script in some
directory like /etc/screem/backups1.sh. It would then
connect your backup script to crontab.
Currently, I have a Bash script that I have set in
crontab. It backs up my website into a tar/gz file on
my USB drive every 4 hours, and deletes backup tar/gz
files that are older than 6 months.
Another thing about this is that sometimes you want to
label and save a particular backup, such as giving one
a name like "RELEASE 1 GOLD" and not let the archive
process destroy the file after 6 months.
