EDIT: Prune backups made with Relax and Recover #rear #linux

People keep asking me how I make incremental backups with rear, so I edited my posting about pruning backups with rear and inserted my config.

Prune backups …

If you don’t want to look that up you find my /etc/rear/local.conf below.

BACKUP=NETFS
OUTPUT=ISO
CDROM_SIZE=20
BACKUP_URL=nfs://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/volume2/LinuxDR/rear
ISO_DIR=/mnt/ISO
ISO_PREFIX=”rear-$HOSTNAME”
BACKUP_PROG_EXCLUDE=( ‘/tmp/*’ ‘/dev/shm/*’ ‘/mnt/*’ ‘/media/*’ $VAR_DIR/output/\* )
BACKUP_SELINUX_DISABLE=1
BACKUP_TYPE=incremental
FULLBACKUPDAY=Fri

I also rsync my backups to an external (Raspberry Pi 1B) server, will post about that later on.

Have fun backing up!
