Thought I'd post this short script I made for doing my own backups using rar. I made it so I could host my backups on openvz containers without worrying about my files being too available, like my emails. It's a script which takes an existing local backup file or folder, stores it as an encrypted rar archive with password and then push's it using rsync to another server. It doe's a couple of other things too. Any who here's the script.
Requires: rar, ssh (public key preferred if you plan to automate it with a cronjob), rsync
Easier to just post it as a text then figure out formatting
