Re: [vox] server backups

Under *nix systems, backing up generally involves using tape back-ups.
cpio, I think, is the tool.  Backing up remotely generally involves NFS
sharing the system, then backing up the NFS share from a different system.

Obviously you don't wanna do this over the Internet.  Then again, you
shouldn't back up a system over the Internet for security reasons anyway
using whatever OS or software.

I hope that helps, though it prolly didn't... :(


PS: Hey... check this out: dump, restore
