    Using WHM backup & NFS

    Hello,

    Is anyone using the WHM backup script along with an NFS mount? Is this a stable way to perform backups?

    What I want to be able to do is have a central NFS server (with ~500GB disk space) that will store backups for all of my servers.

    How would I go about setting up such a system? Will a general redhat 7.2 install with NFS enabled do the trick, or is there something much more involved that I must be doing?

    The WHM documentation really does not give much of a clue as to how I would go about doing this, so if any of you have any ideas, I would appreciate hearing them!

    Thanks!

    Come on guys, you mean to tell me that nobody here has setup a really slick backup system using NFS? :) Just think, you could have 4-5 servers backing up to one bad boy server via NFS, and use those slick built in WHM features to auto-restore sites and databases!

    Surely someone has tried this? Or maybe I will have to be a trend setter! ;)

    Yea...
    Use &rsync& to take care of this though.
    It's 832,110 times more flexible, and it's the fastest shite in the world... well, compared to most solutions for this.

    rsync.samba.org

    cpanel will build/update rsync on your boxes anyway, coz it uses it too, so it's a win/WIN situation.

    Just my .02
