30 Days of GNU/Linux : Day 16
I finally got around to putting together a bash script to backup my major drive. Here is the script: simple but it works well, and I love rsync to death, what does anyone here use to backup? Well anyway, thanks to several links around the web, I worked out a few kinks with permissions, I mean hey, I’m a bit rusty after a few years from the more technical stuff. Then I setup the cron job so it runs everyday. Interested to see how this incremental backup approach works with hardlinks in the incremental folders.
Also, I have been testing XBMC performance on a few devices to really gauge XBMC vs Plex Media Server in these areas (scale 1-10):
- Plex Media Server+ Roku Plex App (8/10)
- XBMC on Ouya (5/10)
- XBMC on my HTPC | Core 2 Duo , 2 Ghz, Dell Gx760, 4GB RAM (7/10)
- XBMC on Raspberry Pi | Model B board | Raspbmc (6/10)
- Plex on Raspberry Pi | Model B board | Rasplex
Well, now that my backup plan is 90% done, minus some testing after the fact, definitely going to get around to setting up SSH access again, and possibly the FTP server again. I will be using my ol’ SSH instructions I posted here way back, and updating the bits that no longer work or apply to my main distribution arch, Debian.
