Affa Quickstart Example
This is an example of a typical setup for a Linux server backup. Assume, you want to back up the directories /root and /home of your server mybox with IP address 10.200.48.1. The server mybox has the rsync binary installed and is running sshd service on port 22.
Log into the Affa server and create the configuration file /etc/affa/mybox.conf
[mybox] remoteHostName=10.200.48.1 Include=/root Include=/home
Check the configuration syntax
Send the public key to the mybox server
affa --send-key mybox
Run the job manually
affa --run mybox
When the job has finished check the status by running
affa --list-archives mybox
If you want the just defined job to be run daily at 10:30 pm, add the following name=value properties to the config file.
