This is a backup program, designed to help you make daily archives of your file system.
Written in bash and perl, it can make tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, and zip archives and can be run in a parallel mode with different configuration files. Other archives are possible: MySQL or SVN dumps, incremental backups…
Archives are kept for a given number of days and the upload system can use FTP, SSH or RSYNC to transfer the generated archives to a list of remote hosts.
The program is designed to be as easy to use as possible and is popular with desktop users and sysadmins. The whole backup process is defined in one full-documented configuration file which needs no more than 5 minutes to tune for your needs. It just works.
