http://serverfault.com – I need help creating a backup script for Rackspace Cloud sites. The sites need daily backups for both the web site & their mysql databases (some sites have as many as 4 databases), the backups then need to be ftp'd off-site. It appears that i can only achieve this via cron jobs. Rackspace show an example backup script but only show how to push files to cloudfile storage (see below). What is the FTP syntax to push the created file to a remote server? #!/bin/sh webroot="YOUR WEBROOT" db_host="YOUR DB HOST" db_user="YOUR DB USERNAME" db_password="YOUR DB PASSWORD" db_name="YOUR DB N (HowTos)
