    I'm making a full data backup every day...
    But I'm a little unsure if I'm missing some vital files.

    This is my script to copy and compress files:

    Today="`date +%d%m%Y`"
    #mkdir /backup/backup-files/$Today
    rm /backup/backup-files/*.*
    rm /backup/total_webserver*.*
    mysqldump -h localhost -u root -p****** -c --add-drop-table --add-locks --all-databases --quick --lock-tables > /backup/backup-files/sql_all-`date '+%d-%b-%Y'`.sql
    cp /etc/passwd /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/postfix/ /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/shadow /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/group /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/postfix/local-host-names /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/postfix/virtusertable /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/named.conf /backup/backup-files
    cp /etc/proftpd*.conf /backup/backup-files
    tar -zcpf /backup/backup-files/www_`date '+%d-%b-%Y'`.tar.gz /srv/www
    tar -zcpf /backup/total_webserver_`date '+%d-%b-%Y'`.tar.gz /backup/backup-files
    cp /backup/total_webserver_`date '+%d-%b-%Y'`.tar.gz /remotebackup

    Thanks for any suggeston you might have...

    It depends on what services you are running and what you want to back up...
    Which distribution are you using? Do you use ISPConfig?

    I suggest to use
    to all your etc & data directories.

    But as falko have already send you should see what services your system is running and where the confs & data are.

    I'm using SUSE 10
    I'm hosting a few webpages and email.
    Using ISPConfig as main system to control the webserver.
    It is a standard HowTo installation.

    I will be looking at Rsnapshot after christmas. Look like a nice alternative to my manual backup. :)
