    I want to backup everything as I just had a lot done to my server. I want to do weekly backups but am not sure as to where to put the path? Should I make a new directory, like /home/backup?

    Thanks!

    RE: Backup

    Hi,

    if you want to make a backup on the same server, you can create a directory /backup. But this is no good idea. What, if your harddrive will crash or your server is hacked? The best solution is to make an external backup to an other server or a tape.

    Regards Frank
