* [[Remote Backup with RSync]]
 
+
A Sample rsync command that I use is:
+
$ rsync -e ssh -av user@alstevens.org:/home/astevens/wiki.alstevens.org /pathto/wiki.alstevens.org
+
 
+
Set up public/private-key security
+
$ ssh-keygen -b 1024 -t rsa -f /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa
+
  (do not enter a pass-phrase - leave it blank)
+
$ scp /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa.pub user@alstevens.org:/home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys
+
The latter is a file. If you are adding other keys, cat them on to the file.
+
 
+
Add the rsync command to the crontab:
+
$ crontab -e command.
+
This command invokes the text editor that has been set for your system environment. The default editor for your system environment is defined in the EDITOR environment variable. If this variable has not been set, the crontab command uses the default editor, ed. To change the default editor:
+
$ which $EDITOR
+
$
+
$ EDITOR=emacs
+
$ export EDITOR
+
 
+
To do a backup everyday at 2am, add this line to the crontab:
+
00 02 * * * rsync -e ssh -av user@alstevens.org:/home/astevens/wiki.alstevens.org /pathto/wiki.alstevens.org

HowTo Wiki

Notes, mostly technical on how to configure, install, troubleshoot computer systems.

I've chosen topics mostly because I went through the process of selecting, installing and configuring something, usually a software application, tool or and utilities. They are here primarily so that I can consult them when needed and refer others to them.

Ubuntu Linux

My home server, running Win2K, failed to reboot after it's last update. The problem turned out to be a bad disk. I decided to abandon Windows and go with Linux. Most of my experience has been with Red Hat, but a friend had praised Ubuntu, so I decided to give it a try. I wanted:

  1. A file server with enough capacity to handle our household -- two people who do a medium amount of photo work, a lot of office work, no music and an occasional video.
  2. Accessibility from outside
  3. A web server running Apache, php and mySQL
  4. Immunity from power failure -- orderly shutdown and restart

First look is great. Maybe I'll give up Homesite.
