    I'm looking for a very easy way to back up my server daily and be able to restore all my websites with the mysql databases with minimal work.

    Are there walkthroughs for this?

    I have checked and it does not seem like there are many backup options.

    I am using Ubuntu Feisty.

    Am I just better off using an Ubuntu backup application and backing up the entire system?

    Check out amanda and zmanda using virtual tapes. I'm writing a HOWTO for amanda at present but otherwise the docs on amanda website and wiki are helpful. We use amanda to backup a couple of ISPconfig servers (data and mysql) - restore of single files and recovery of whole file systems have been really quick and easy. It is a powerful tool!

    Note - you do not have to have a tape changer for this solution, although it is geared towards that infrastructure. What you can do is use a virtual tape changer using local disk capacity. Set 4GB images and then you can burn the backups on DVD.

    http://www.amanda.org/ and via google, of course ;)

    you could also look at Backuppc. You would need to do a hotbackup or a dump of your mysql databases as a cron job then backuppc will also pick up that file.
