Backup Manager

Not Rated
Tags: rsync

This is a backup program, designed to help you make daily archives of your file system.

Written in bash and perl, it can make tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, and zip archives and can be run in a parallel mode with different configuration files. Other archives are possible: MySQL or SVN dumps, incremental backups...

Archives are kept for a given number of days and the upload system can use FTP, SSH or RSYNC to transfer the generated archives to a list of remote hosts.

Automatically burning archives to removable media such as CD or DVD is also possible.

The configuration file is very simple and basic and gettext is used for internationalization.
