Automated Backups using dirvish
So I finally got around to set up a daily, automated backup system.
Noop proposed dirvish to me, along with this tutorial. At first glance the tutorial looked quite complex because dirvish does have quite a lot of options to configure. I decided to try and after an hour of trying I had it working, with a compressed transmission and SSH keyfiles. Since it comes as an Ubuntu package most of the stuff is already set up, you just have to copy the example master.conf or creat one on your own and create configs for your vaults.
So far it seems to run fine and I hope i will never have to use the backups it makes :)
