    Found the rsync tutorial today (

    When running it as someuser it doesn't have permissions to copy the Maildir folders. So I have to run it as root.

    Is it possible to make a key, as in tutorial, for root user so the script can run without password? (without effecting the normal root login)
    Or is there an other option to get it working?

    Yes, that's possible. Make sure that direct root logins are enabled in your sshd_config.

    To make it run as root
    Do i have to do the following steps as root ?


    (Please do this as someuser!)

    mkdir ~/.ssh
    chmod 700 ~/.ssh
    mv ~/ ~/.ssh/
    cd ~/.ssh
    touch authorized_keys
    chmod 600 authorized_keys
    cat >> authorized_keys
