NAME

       gm-move_backups_offsite - move GNUmed backups to elsewhere

SYNOPSIS

       gm-move_backups_offsite

DESCRIPTION

       The  gm-move_backups_offsite  script  can  be  used  to move backups to
       another host, IOW storing them "offsite" in the loosest  sense  of  the
       word.

EXAMPLE

       Imagine the following situation:

       1) a laptop running client and database which is
          taken to the office, to patients, etc

       2) a desktop at home with some spare storage

       3) the laptop is occasionally connected to the home
          network and thus has access to the desktop machine

       Given  appropriate  configuration  of gm-move_backups_offsite one could
       add the following two lines to the cron script on the  laptop  to  make
       sure database backups are replicated to the desktop whenever the laptop
       has access to it:

       @reboot         /usr/bin/gm-move_backups_offsite.sh

       5 0-23 * * *    /usr/bin/gm-move_backups_offsite.sh
