Encrypted remote backups made easy

Filed under
HowTos

This is an easy way to take backups and putting them on a remote site. I invented this script in order to put backups on a reliable remote site where I unfortunately only have a user account.

The prerequisites for this script is:

* Public key authentication over SSH set up with the remote site. If you dont have this, follow this guide.
* Gnu-PG installed

This is the entire script. Everything written in capital letters should be replaced by your own information. If you want an explanation of each section of the script, look a bit further down...
