Automatic backup

Your VPS is pre-installed with the settings that allow Panix's backup servers to connect and make backup copies of your hard disk.

  2. /etc/rsyncd.conf contains settings that allows Panix's backup server ( to backup your disk.
If you wish automatic backup to work:
  1. Don't firewall the backup server ( on the rsync port TCP (873)
  2. Don't unconfigure the things we set up for it to work (inetd and the rsync config files /etc/rsyncd.conf).
