Rsnapshot for local and remote backup

Hi,

I knew rsnapshot from Ubuntu and it does an excellent and stable job on a remote machine I'm running. Therefore I wanted to install it also on my DNS box. Although it is a perl script (you will need perl to be installed to run it), one had to adjust some parameters and function calls to one tool (busybox is not fully compliant to the GNU tools - unfortunately).

Anyhow, please find attached rsnapshot in version 1.3.0 to this post.

Enjoy!

Re: Rsnapshot for local and remote backup

Where can I get Perl from and how would I install it?

Re: Rsnapshot for local and remote backup

I'm using ffp 0.5 from fonz http://www.inreto.de/dns323/fun-plug/.

You can install the perl version by typing

Code:

funpkg -i perl-5.8.8-2.tgz

Re: Rsnapshot for local and remote backup

To check the crontab type: crontab -l

The schedule is between 3:10 (monthly), 3:20 (weekly) and 3:30 (daily).

Re: Rsnapshot for local and remote backup

Does it fix anything specific, which you need? Otherwise its a bit of a mess to make it run on the DNS323. Have done it a few month ago and to be honest, I don't what you have to adapt in the sources, so that it runs on the DNS. You can't "just" compile it for the DNS...

If you want, you can have a look at the sources.
