Permission Question: Mirror with rsync & ISPConfig 3
I've been following the Mirror Your Web Site With rsync tutorial in an effort to backup my clients sites to another server. Because I use a VPS with relatively small disk space, I don't have the room to run a .tgz backup script like I want.
In step 2 it states that "(of course, someuser must have read permissions on /var/www on server1.example.com)." To solve this, I added 'someuser' the each clients' group (client1, client2, etc.) which solved some of the problem.
However, using ISPConfig 22.214.171.124 (my current version), the ../client/client#/web#/web folder is set to 710. As such, the group doesn't have read permission to the folder, thus backing up the ./web directory doesn't work. You guys have always stated that manually changing permissions to individual folders managed by ISPConfig is a bad thing. So, what is your recommendation to allow 'someuser' to read the ./web directory in order to rsync this info to another box?
