    I only have one cpanel machine, and it is a recent addition. I love it.. except for the back up schemes.

    Normally I use rsync. I can't envision a better backup plan.

    tarring then ftping seems pretty shaky.. I am about to do some disaster recovery tests.. ie, unplug stuff and see how long it takes to get back up and running, and my cpanel machine is a long way from being quickly recoverable.

    Has anyone done any work with rsync? Is anyone working on incorporating it into cpanel as an alternative to ftp or partition backups?
