Does anyone know of a rsync script that will backup all the important directories that need to be restored in the event of a server failure.

to be restored in the event of a server failure.

Code:
rsync -vrplogDtH secondarymx domainalias valiases vfilters exim* proftpd* pure-ftpd* passwd* group* *domain* *named* wwwacct.conf cpupdate.conf quota.conf shadow* *rndc* ips* ipaddrpool* ssl  /etc


rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/usr/local/apache/conf /usr/local/apache
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/var/named /var
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/home/* /home
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/usr/local/cpanel /usr/local
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/var/lib/mysql /var/lib
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/var/cpanel /var
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/usr/share/ssl /usr/share
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/var/ssl /var
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/var/log/bandwidth /var/log
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/usr/local/frontpage /usr/local
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/var/spool/cron /var/spool

-v, –verbose increase verbosity
-r, –recursive recurse into directories
-l, –links copy symlinks as symlinks
-o, –owner preserve owner (super-user only)
-g, –group preserve group
-D same as –devices –specials
-t, –times preserve modification times
-H, –hard-links preserve hard links

Should the top rsync command be:

PHP:
rsync -vrplogDtH /mnt/old/etc/ secondarymx domainalias valiases vfilters exim* proftpd* pure-ftpd* passwd* group* *domain* *named* wwwacct.conf cpupdate.conf quota.conf shadow* *rndc* ips* ipaddrpool* ssl /etc

Also does the virtual file system in the /home directory need to be backed up or can that be excluded?
