    • rsnapshot plugin - remote computer as source?

      Hi

      I want to use the rsnapshot plugoin to make backups of data on a different computer. At the moment I have created a config file for rsnapshot manually and use

      Source Code

      1. backup root@lms.local:/media/Music

      as the definition of the source. Than I call


      Source Code

      1. rsnapshot -c /media/DataInteral/rsnapshot.conf/lms.conf monthly
      in a Scheduled Job to execute the rsnapshot.


      Is there a possibility to use the rsnapshot plugin to define a remote ssh source instead of a local shared folder? The remote-share plugin does not work - otherwise I could use that one.

    • While rsnapshot can do this, the rsnapshot plugin does not have this capability. You can use the rsync plugin.

    • I agree that it would be nice. Just wish someone else would code it :) The remote share plugin needs to be rewritten although a lot of the problems people have with it are due to permissions.
