What would be best to backup?

#1 Postby gregmine » Oct 31, 2010 3:09 pm


As a safety procedure:

1- Which file(s) in the sibsoft system that should be backed-up on daily and monthly basis as a safety precaution?

2- When you become a large file hosting provider with tens of file servers how do you backup your hard drives or take precautions for emergencies such as hard drive failures?

Thank you.

Dont run front-end and fileserver on the same install.

Take backup of all files in public_html and cgi-bin

if you run both front and file on same server you need to exclude the uploads folder.

Take backup everyday and take backup before doing changes..
Also take backup for the mysql database atleast once a day.

For fileserver backup
you either use raid1/5/6/10 incase of disk failure or you rsync to another server. Or rsync the files folder to another backupserver.
