Ok, i'm moving servers and i have a large community site that keeps failing during the move process.

My last option is to just Tar the /home/SITE folder and use the fullbackup i created in WHM for that site. Which would create the account and restore all the mysql stuff....

my question is what shell command would i user to tar all files/folders with chmod and chown kept in tack..?

The z is for compression - don't use z and you wont be compressing


If you want a headache - type tar --help:eek:
I believe the term is "information overload"

Now - is anyone aware of something that will provide as complete a possible a backup of a virtual host, with an FTP server being on the receiving end of that backup?

I want the ability to have the server re-provisioned, setup my backup solution and restore all configuration, accounts, settings logs and data.

The thing has to exist - but my searches keep getting overloaded by the number of FTP clients and backups that aren't what I'm looking for.
