"Online" backup root directory?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 30, 2011
I am finally switching from a dedicated server to colocation for my personal server. I'm seeking advice on the best way to get a full root backup of the server without having physical access to it.
Best I could come up with would be to move necessary files to a ramdisk, chroot onto the ramdisk, take the root partition offline, and perform the backup at that point. I have already rsync'd the entire root directory of the server to my new server, but since the filesystem was online during the process, I'm sure this would leave major inconsistencies.
Is it even possible to accomplish a backup of the root directory without physical server access? My goal is to be able to copy the filesystem completely so that I could literally plug it into my new server and boot it up with minimal modifications. Am I dreaming?
I've already backed up the "important" stuff using rsync, but over the years I've spent a lot of time configuring various services just the way I like/need, and
Best way to backup a Ubuntu computer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 6, 2014
I recently installed Ubuntu for the first time on an old ex-Windows desktop. I actually am more familiar with using Mac computers and for backup use have used SuperDuper which basically mirrors the drive to an external hard drive. I have since purchased an external hard drive to use for a Ubuntu backup. Since I'm new to Ubuntu I am not familiar with backing up a Linux machine. I basically want a complete backup of my internal hard drive where if for any reason the internal hard drive fails I could simply replace it and restore from my backup. What is the best way to back up a Ubuntu machine? Thanks in advance.

Script to make a rolling archive

I have several data sources (logs, pictures, videos, etc) that I want to write to an optical disk when there's enough data. When a certain threshold is meet (by size or oldest file), I want to:
1. Create an ISO file.
2. Create an "index file" on the system that gives a listing of the files in the ISO.
3. Verify the ISO is created without error.
4. Delete the files contained in the ISO from system
I could do this all in bash, but it seems like such common problem. Does anyone have a script/tool that can do this or most of this?
Beyond the Red Line (Game With Linux Version) Based on Battlestar Galactica
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 19, 2007
EDIT: Just realized this should have gone in Gaming & Leisure. Mods, please move if you get a chance.
I came across a new community developed game today, Beyond the Red Line, based on the new (rather than original) Battlestar Galactica TV series. This was exciting as there is a Linux (as well as Windows and Apple) version. I did have a problem running the game tho (on my Toshiba A120 running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn beta - fully updated), so I have documented the solution here for future reference.
Installing the game was easy. Download the Linux install to the desktop (took about 30mins). Then change the permissions of the file so that it is executable - right click on the file, choose the permissions tab and click the “allow executing file as program” check box, and then click close. Then run the install - double click the install file (BtRLDemoInstaller.run) and click “run”. After checking the files integrity the install box pops up, then click through the co
Next Generation Package Manager PKGNG. Is it working already?
- date: August 8, 2013
I have run 'pkg update' without any error but subsequent search for packages return no result.
:/root # pkg update
Updating repository catalogue
Repository catalogue is up-to-date, no need to fetch fresh copy
:/root # pkg search nagios
:/root # pkg search mysql-server
Is there any other additional configuration required for the command to work?
Thanks for helping a newbie.

I want to block all outgoing traffic from my ubuntu 9.04 laptop to a particular ip address.
I have tried...
ufw deny from 0.0.0.0/0 to 10.240.1.104
ufw deny from anywhere to 10.240.1.104
but I can still access the machine (10.240.1.104)...
telnet 10.240.1.104 389
Connected to 10.240.1.104.
Escape character is '^]'.
I have tried restarting ufw and I see the rule in my iptables...

DROP all -- anywhere 10.240.1.104
What am I doing wrong?
