Thank you very much! I was hoping one of those post would work for me. I’m not too savvy with the CLI yet.
If I read correctly boto-rsync is the route I would want to go to save bandwidth (which I do). Does it only transfer files that have changed from those in DreamObjects? If so, then this would be perfect since I will only make a few changes to config files and of course MySQL databases and wouldn’t benefit from a full backup every time.
To use boto-rsync, I would use the following in a cronjob?
boto-rsync -a ACCESSKEY -s SECRETKEY --endpoint objects.dreamhost.com /SOURCE/PATH/ s3://DESTINATIONBUCKET/PATH/
I read in the Wiki that I can include --delete to remove files no longer needed? How would that work?
If I go the route of the backup.php, this would use the most bandwidth since it would transfer the entire contents over to DreamObjects every time it is run. To me, this would be the easier way…I just want to be server friendly and as I mentioned before, I will only be changing a few files from time to time.
Honestly I would rather wait to see what options ya’ll come up with for backups. Leave it to the experts as they say. The down side is I also would like a secure backup location now without downloading my sites…which I’m doing now and I started around 0900 this morning…it’s 1049 now…falling asleep at the keyboard…
