- move GNUmed backups to elsewhere
script can be used to move backups to another
host, IOW storing them "offsite" in the loosest sense of the word.
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:
5 0-23 * * * /usr/bin/gm-move_backups_offsite.sh
