SMALLTARBKP v4

Yet another version and what is the difference between v3 & v4 well to be honest only a few minor bugs that may or may not happen depending on how the script was being used but the biggest difference is the fact that v4 has a separate config file ${HOME}/.config/.smalltarbkp giving the ability to convert the script to any other language and still maintain the existing details.

The current version of #smalltarbkp v4 provides the same version as previews version 3 and those are the current features:

  • Self-contained script (no config files)
  • TAR based backups
  • Compression
  • Encryption
  • Local backups
  • Cloud-based backups
  • PATH based backups
  • Include list based backups
  • MYSQL/MariaDB based backups
  • Backup images reporting
  • Backup Retention period
  • MYSQL/MariaDB DB Backups

The installation continuous as simple as ever assuming all dependencies are installed but that will be listed if missing when running the configure flag.

$ mkdir ~/backup
$ cd ~/backup
$ wget -qO smalltarbkp http://bit.ly/2NRidz8
$ chmod 755 smalltarbkp
$ echo “alias smalltarbkp=’~/backup/smalltarbkp'” >> ~/.bashrc
$ source ~/.bashrc

$ smalltarbkp -configure

After that, all you have to do is run backups. You can backup locally or to the cloud in this case mega.nz

For those unsure of the http://bit.ly link just paste it in your browser and you will see it’s just the backup script 🙂
