I am a Windows administrator standing up an Ubuntu Server for some intranet LAMP applications. I have read through some of the Ubuntu documentation but am not clear on a good way to get backups of the system. Obviously what I would like to do is be able restore the application data (and perhaps applications) if an issue occurs to the box. I would like the schedule the backup to run daily.
What are (is) the recommended way to backup up an Ubuntu server?
Am I able to direct backups to a network share where they will be put to tape?
What is involved in restoring the data?
