Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And duply On Debian Squeeze

falko's picture

When you rent a dedicated server nowadays, almost all providers give you FTP backup space for your server on one of the provider's backup systems. This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and duply to create encrypted backups on the provider's remote backup server over FTP. duply is a duplicity wrapper script that allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to type in any passwords).

This looks like a very useful setup. I was searching for a solution to almost the same problem, that is to encrypt and back up data to a remote server, the only difference being that i wanted to do this over SSH. Duply works in this case
as well.
