Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Backup Linux Servers for a super Quick Install (Technology Quick Guides) (Kindle Edition)
This guide is only waffle and then a just shows you one command... TAR. That's right, the author is suggesting that you tar up all the folders excluding some folders like proc sys and net. Wow! That's such nonsense. How you restore from that?
Well, the author is also using Amason EC2 to run the server, so this is useless for anyone running a linix server on anything else. i.e this would not work on bare metal or any other virtual machine type.
He is also using EBS to mount the copied folders and turning them into a new EC2 machine.
He doesn't tell you how to actually do this which might have been useful. He just brushes over everything.
So basically, don't buy the book it is complete rubbish and useless for anyone not on Amazon EC2. You won't learn anything.
