I have a bit of a tricky question about rsync.
Let's say I want to backup a bunch of configuration files with rsync, in
What I don't want to do : a full snapshot of /etc.
What I want to do : backup only those files I need, in an otherwise
empty directory tree.
In my script, I'd begin with a list of the files I effectively want to
backup. Something like :
Then I'd have some other files in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin,
which I would like to backup too.
Instead of a puzzling explanation, let me just show you how I would like
my resulting backup to look like, so you get the idea :
| `-- httpd.conf
| |-- script1.sh
| `-- script2.sh
Now if I do something like this :
rsync -av /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf destinationfolder/
I get something like :
QUESTION (at last) : is there a way rsync can somehow add the full file
path, so the end result is more like :
Any suggestions ?
