Hey all. I want to backup my forum to my backup server, but file permissions are not being copied. Here's the command, Code: rsync -arvz -e 'ssh -p xx' --progress testing/ firstname.lastname@example.org:/foo/bar/backup/ Secondly, which method do you think is best? 1: rsync'ing the entire httpdocs uncompressed, I believe rsync ignores files which haven't changed so after the 1st run I'm only syncing files from XF updates/plugin updates. 2: gzip httpdocs and rsync that over, just 1 file. what's better? Thanks.
