    How to make a backup from / ? (so the whole system).
    I only have
    in the lista.txt file but it doesn't seem to work. Last night it only backupped the databases.

    Another question. What if I want this script to backup to a local folder? Is this a possibility?

    I guess just changing the
    in Franz his script will do it to backup locally.

    My idea was to colocate 2 servers in the datacenter, but for the beginning this is to expensive for me. So I will start with colocate 1 server in the datacenter, create the backups in a local folder and copy them to the computer at home.

    Any other suggestions are welcome :)

    Backups are finished, just checked, all files have been written to the local folder. But at the end the script gives me this error:

    What does it mean?

    The script is works well, but you should fix these lines on your blog

    log "Dump OK. Starting SCP"
    # $SCP/mysql-$i-$datum_x.sql.bz2 $dirname/

    you have them commented out.

    Some syntax indentation would make it more readable.

    That was the ticket Tibor, thanks! Ensuring that both boxes use the same account/password for the SQL Server service did the trick. Backups are now running properly between the servers. Again, many, many thanks!

    cheapest remote server hosting service

    I want to get a service that allow me to control a remote server and do things like surfing the internet plus installing Windows program.

    I think it called dedicated server but I want something cheap per month and surf web using it.

    Hi Franz,
    When I want to do step 3 on the remote server
    cat /tmp/ >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2

    I get this error:
    “bash: /.ssh/authorized_keys2: No such file or directory”.

    What should I do?

    Are you sure you typed in the ~ before /.ssh/authorized_keys2?

    cat /tmp/ >> [COLOR="Red"]~[/COLOR]/.ssh/authorized_keys2

    mkdir /root/.ssh

    Did you enable the root account (i.e., set a root password)?
    Are root logins allowed in your SSH configuration (etc/ssh/sshd_config)?
  18. ikrudolf

    In the sshd_config is sais "PermitRootLogin yes" and the root password is set.
