tgz ubuntu backup from amd > different intel computer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 17, 2013
I have a tgz backup of the entire installation of an amd ubuntu 10.04 server. Now, when the computer said a final farewell, I wonder how I could restore to an intel computer?
Should I try to extract the files to the root and hope for the best? Or, should I rather install the server from scratch, and try to copy in the backupfiles some way? Should I rather install a newer version right away?
I have apache, php, mysql, rails (redmine) and webmin installed (these are the most important parts).

Full server backup

I need to back up a client server running Ubuntu Server 12.04 ( I think...) to an external drive. They had someone in the past set up a command for them that tars the entire drive to a backup file then they move that file to a backup drive. I'm asking for help on a few items:
Please review the backup steps they take now and tell me if they are sufficient to accomplish a bare metal restore assuming the server hard drive fails or we move it to another machine altogether. I'm trying to test that now, but at 100GB, the backup file takes some time to move around and attempt a restore. (more below)I'm going to attempt restoring this to a virtual machine in VirtualBox. That should work, right?What is the best long-term backup strategy for this. My priorities are minimal down-time, but a few hours is alright. My feeling is I should be able to get incremental backups set up using three or four external drives they'd cycle off-site weekly. A RAID1 mirror is on my list too. So, what's the best
[SOLVED] How do I mount External Hard Drive and what command to backup Home Folder to it ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 30, 2011
On ubuntu 10.10 notebook edition, that won't boot due to /sbin/init being damaged, how would I mount the External Hard Drive and then what command would I use to backup my Home Folder to External Hard Drive , using live CD?
I am hoping to salvage my Home Folder and then do a Re-install of my ubuntu 10.10 notebook edition.
Using Live CD when I go to my home folder, I can see all the partitions on the old system and their size, but how would I back up the Home Folder to the external HD?
[SOLVED] Upgrade from Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04 crashed now I cant backup my files
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 6, 2010
I was running Ubuntu 9.10. It was great, I loved it. Update manager said there was an upgrade available to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04. (This is the first time I have ever said Yes, install upgrade. I usually do a backup and install a fresh copy of the newer version.) Anyway the upgrade installed and reported an x-server error but the rest looked OK. After reboot---thats it, nothing after reboot. Just sits at a Ubuntu page like it wants to load but it will not. I could handle this if only I had made a backup first. (I should have known better.)I have another PC running Ubuntu 9.10 so I took the hard drive from the failed upgrade and I have it hooked up to my SATA drive adapter and the USB side into my other Ubuntu PC. So now I can see the folders on the failed upgrade disc. (great.) Thats all I need are the files that are in "Documents" folder. I assume "Documents" is in my "root" folder. The "root" folder has an X symbol on the top right corner and
How to automatically detect and backup changes to folder?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2009
Ok so here's the deal. I've got a main gaming desktop that I use all the time. I've also got an HTPC and a Fileserver. My dilemma is that I like to have my Music, Pictures, Videos, and other important data backed up onto the Fileserver (which is running Xubuntu).
I've gotten FTP, Samba, and everything setup correctly, can access it from outside the home network and stuff so I can stream music to my laptop when I'm on my college campus without having to take up so much hdd space on my laptop, as well as backup my programming and essay homework.
What I would like to do is have the fileserver automatically detect changes in my main desktops 1TB hard drive where all the Music, videos etc are originally from and then copy the new files to itself. Is there any way to have this done without it completely copying the whole folders over. I've found a guide on how to do it with rsync, but it basically copies the entire folder over again, and with 230GB worth of data, that's not worth it ev

create a backup cd while running a livecd of ubuntu 10.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 27, 2011
is there a way to boot ubuntu 10.04, without installing, and make a backup cd so i can download programs, and save them to the cd to install on an offline box? ive tried looking for aptoncd but it is mia, and keryx doesnt seem to work right, or explain itself fully. or not enough to me and my lack of experience. my labtop is still running xp and id like to keep it that way until im more comfortable with the ubuntu. right now i can only use the desktop as a jukebox and id like to be able to get some games and to get Samba. but its very hard without internet and im having trouble with linux terminal. id like to end up with an installation cd with all the programs i need, along with their dependancies, and none of the extra fluff i dont.
thank you for your help

how can I backup my xbox360 games
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2009
I am trying to backup my owned xbox360 games but I am having no luck what so ever. I have looked at other threads on backing up game dvd's but I think I am missing a very important step. First problem, I cannot see any game file information only a video and audio ts folders with about 4mb of information stored on the disc itself. My dvd rewriter is dual layer capable (lite-on sohw-1693s, I was going to use terminal with a command I found in another post,
growisofs -use-the-force-luke=dao -use-the-force-luke=break:1913760 -dvd-compat -speed=2 -Z /dev/hdc=IMAGE.000
but as i have said there is no image file at all on the disc, so how would I do this?
Also I want the backup to be playable on my xbox 360 and have heard that a physical modification to the console is required to to play the backups and I have also heard that I would have to take apart my dvd burner to copy the discs, Is any of this true or is that just myth. I have a standard store bought xbox 360 arcade version wit
