How do I create a periodic backup of my server files? Ubuntu 16.04

  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if this is possible and if someone would be kind enough to write a script. I run my server on a screen and I'm looking to back up the entire server folder or the maps and plugins folder.

    Thank you.

    Other cool options for backups:
    Back in the day, I used duply to back up my server to an AWS S3 bucket. However, both of these tools above can back up to local disk or a directory too.
