tob is a general driver for making and maintaining backups.
apt-get install tob
cp tob /usr/local/sbin
cp tob.rc /etc/tob/tob.rc
cp example.* /etc/tob/volumes
rpm -ta tob-*.tgz
rpm -i tob*.rpm
Test your installation by typing:
tob -full example
tob -verify example
tob uses a separate archiver to do its work. The stock, recommended, configuration uses 'afio'. We suggestion at least afio 2.4.8.
Other archivers that are known to work include tar and arj; please see the sample-rc directory for examples.
You also need bash, sed, and other standard Unix tools.
