I have just made my first complete backup of my Linux system. I would
now like to set it up so that the system automatically backs up certain things
at timed intervals. I am using Linux v. 1.1.94 on a Dell Pentium with an
Iomega 250 QIC-80 tape drive. The machine functions mainly as a web server.
These web files are constantly being updated daily. The web files reside
in /home/www Therefore, I would like to create a cron job that backs up
just these files everynight at midnoght. I also would like to backup the users
home directories once a week. How would I set up my cron script to handle
this? Also, how often do I have to change the tape. Also, at each backup,
will the tape rewind and start at the beginning or will it just append this
night's backup to the previous one? Sorry to appear so clueless. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance.
