I would like to backup some website directorys on one machine to another machine. I have read the rsync man pages and some sites but am still confused about how the command line should be. I will only run it from the command line every so often.
I have tried several ways but can't figure it out. I guess I am having issues with how the directories should be listed on the command line. One the server that is to be backed up the directory is /home/sites/www.domain.com/web - all files and other directories are below the /web and in reading it seemed I should keep the trailing slash off. on the server that the files will be copied to the directory is /home/domain/website/ If I understood right the trailing slash should be on this one. ./rsync -ae ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/sites/www.domain.com/web /home/domain/website/ am I even close to being right ? thanks Mark _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
