I want to ask what are the options and ways you guys use to backup and restore complete server, complete os, everything from hard drive? Let's say i have a dedicated server at hosting x and i want to backup everything on weekly or daily basis in case of hardware failure or if something goes wrong when updating. I am thinking of using either rsync or bacula and i want to backup everything to another server or to my pc. There is no option to make a snapshot or backup entire ssd/partition at hosting level so i have to do it my self. So far i've been using rsync to do backups of user files like /var/www/clients folders and it's simple and easy to backup and restore files that most often do not change, but doing complete server backup with rsync ? Is it doable, is it easy or complicated, i guess i definitely need to avoid backing up swap, tmp, proc folders? I didn't use bacula yet but i find it as a possible solution. What do you recommend or use ?
