If you are a contributor, or you are looking for something to contribute to, a better guide on how to back up your server would be greatly appreciated!
Currently, the reccomended method of server backup is to use a
cron job and a backup service of choice (like Borg Backup, Google Drive, and others…) in order to back up your critical user data.
Here is a simple guide on how to set it up (you’ll need root permissions), if you are running on Linux:
backupand it copies my
configfolders to a remote cloud service, like AWS.
0 * * * *.
crontab -eand add a job that says
0 * * * * backup.
Your cron job will now run regularly using system timers!
