Backuping in Webmin like in virtualmin

Is there any way how to backup files or filesystems in Webmin the way like in Virtualmin?

I am usning freebsd and when I would like to schedule backup to remote server my tar command says that it doesn’t know --rsh-command option - which could be found in manual too - there is no such option.

And I’d like to have versions of backups too like in virtualmin pro or maybe in GPL too can be done through Backups of virtual servers.

Isn’t here any way to have this done?

Thanks a lot.

Webmin has the Filesystem Backup module, which does scheduled backups and other nice things. It uses dump or tar for its archive format. dump has incremental capabilities…I don’t know if the Filesystem Backup module knows how to use tar to create incrementals.

If it does, you’d need GNU tar, since the FreeBSD tar is an old school implementation of tar…quite limited, and certainly doesn’t have incremental support.

Thanks a lot again Joe.

As always you were right.

And it was as simple as reading first lines of freebsd-lib.pl:

gtar || tar …

My laiziness …
