Since the demise of my late server, I’ve been gleeful that backups were kept of all my data. I know there are hundreds, if not thousands, of backup managers that have fifty functions that aren’t needed, and only three that are, and that just doesn’t stick well with me.

After my server’s crash (literally) I wrote my own script that backs-up, archives, and uploads remotely to my Amazon S3 account, the important files necessary for keeping a web server well-oiled.

I’ve put my script on GitHub, under a free software license, in hopes that it helps other minimalists who want an easy way to archive their sites.
