Hello, i want to back-up my whole /home/ folder and database to a FTP server, without compression or encryption. Just in a zip or tar so i can unpack it easily.

How can i do this, was trying duplicity but still difftar files. ]

Is there maybe a simple back-up script?

    Not sure why you'd want to get into netcat for someone who is obviously not a super-technical user?

    Maybe just:

    cd /home
    tar cpf username.tar username
    

    And then you have a .tar to send. On the other side:

    cd /home
    tar xpf username.tar
    

    I believe it's possible to not compress with zip but...it's pointless since you can do that with tar and I don't feel like looking up the "turn off compression" flag for zip :-)

    Now I'm wondering if BSD 4.3 had threads...I guess it probably did because I think that's the release where POSIX was stuffed in.

    Guess you didn't make it to USENIX that year.. https://www.usenix.org/legacy/publications/compsystems/1990/win_boykin.pdf

  • Is SSH an option? I can do that in one line.

    Otherwise, a script involving ncftp is probably what is needed.
