RIBS (Rsync Incremental Backup Script)

RIBS is an incremental backup system written in PHP which utilizes some common *nix programs (specifically rsync, ssh and cp). Incremental backups mean frequent backups can be done (i.e. hourly) with only around 2x the space of the full backup. Using rsync means that RIBS can act as both a backup script on a local machine, or as a script to backup several network hosts. It is designed to be highly configurable and highly informative to the system administrator. There is a high amount of error checking, and logging/email capabilities.

* Download the latest version of RIBS here:

* tar -xzvf ribs-x.x.tar.gz
* cd ribs-x.x
* ./ribs.php example hourly

example is a part in Configuration part of ribs-x.x file. You can change this part and make your config.
