Linux webserver backup using RClone

This is a simple webserver backup script that utilizes rclone to mount onedrive storage to store backups. You can use any rclone configured storage.


How to use the script

copy the script below and update the config VARs section and change all <USERNAME> sections to point to the appropriate user. This script assumes web site directories are in /www and the backup directory is /backup but this is easily updated. You will also want to update the CONFIG VARS to point to your rclone config and name your backups.

** Mysql / Mariadb backups

create a cnf file to allow the script to login. Make a backup user and give permissions to backup all databases. Below is a sample cnf that should be placed in /home/<USERNAME>/bin/backup.cnf

[client] host=localhost port=3306 #socket #database="*" user="BACKUP USER" password="PASSWORD"
