I have an Ubuntu Server and one of its "tasks" is to mirror/backup files located on another server in a different location using rsync/rdiff-backup.
I know there are some conventions like web pages go in /var/www.
What is the best-practice/default location for storing the backup files?
Possible places I considered:
/var/backup - looks like it is used for internal backups of the OS
/home/backup - I could create this directory, but if maintaining backups is a "service" this server provides, I feel it is wrong to put the files in the same folder with personal user files
PS I am aware this question might be subjective (I got the warning tooltip), but I think what I do is quite common, and there has to be a convention.
