    Hi all,

    We backup to a remove FTP server, so the system files don't get backed up. Instead, I'd like to just backup all the system files to say /home/backupuser - which will be an actual user created in WHM, and can then be backed up to the FTP server.

    Which files & folders do I need to backup? I'll be using rsync as root.
