An rsync-based backup solution for easy backups
Authored by: fracai on Sep 26, '08 08:10:33AM
Check out rsnapshot as well.
Perhaps not as many features (all it does is backup and rotate, using a simple config file), but simple to use and easy to modify.

Second vote for rsnapshot
Authored by: wireface on Sep 26, '08 08:48:40AM

I second rsnapshot. It also is rsync based, makes use of hard links, does automatic rotation, error chechink, etc. It is easy to set up and has been around for years so it has had lost of testing and updates. I was a big fan of rsnapshot before time machine came along and I still use it on my pre 10.5 macs and other unixes.
