       backup-manager - An easy to use backup tool for your Linux box.


         backup-manager [options]


       Backup Manager is an easy-to-use tool for generating archives.

       It  is  designed  with  simplicity in mind for those who don't want an obfuscated tool for
       making tarballs.

       There are different methods for building archives: tarballs, incremental  tarballs,  mysql
       dumps,  svn  dump.  You  can  also  write  your own method with a generic method that will
       execute a command and will archive its output.

       Every times you run Backup Manager, you can upload archives thanks to a couple  of  upload
       methods: through FTP, SSH or even with RSYNC.

       It's also possible to export your archives to removable media like CDR or DVD.


       Backup  Manager's  behavior  is  defined  in  configuration  files.  You can use different
       configuration files at the same time.  The default  configuration  file  is  `/etc/backup-

       An  example should have been provided with the program, most of the time it's installed in

       If you want exhaustive details about how to write your  own  configuration  files,  please
       refer to the Backup Manager User Guide.
