    Hi. I have a ubuntu 8.04 Server with ISPConfig 2.2.27 at remote IDC, I need to be able to backup the image onto my local linux computer or windows computer, how do I backup it? can I do it remotely?
    Thank you for helping in advance!

    You can use any linux backup method for this. If you enter the word "backup" you will find a lot of tutorials here at howtoforge. One solution might be e.g. backuppc. Or you go the traditional way and use tar.

    Thanks Till!

    I have read the article as below:

    Back Up Linux And Windows Systems With BackupPC
    Version 1.0
    Author: Falko Timme

    Falko said that 'BackupPC stores the backups in /var/lib/backuppc', I think it means that the backups will be stored in the remote server's hd, my server was in remote IDC, I want to use some ways, for example, to login remote server via putty to backup and to store backups in my local Linux or Windows computer, how to do that? I searched, but cannot find result, will you please give me a website linkage about the topic, thanks a lot!

    backkuppc is exactly doing that. You just mix up server and client. The client is the computer were you want to make a backup from.
