I don’t have an issue per se my Sympl installation is running perfectly. I’m just wondering how other users are backing up machines running Sympl?
Sympl’s default backup location is to /var/backups/localhost and /var/backups/MySQL
The support docs recommend synchronising all local backups to another server on another network.
I have a machine hosting one small website plus 250 mailboxes. In terms of resource the server is coping however I’m always wary of running out of system disc space due to the amount of mail being stored on the server.
Is it a Sympl system requirement to backup to /var/backups/localhost and /var/backups/MySQL or can I send the backups to some archive grade storage discs on another machine? What are the pros and cons of doing so?
How are you guys out there maintaining backups?
All the best - Pete
