    Is there an easy way to backup files to web server? I have my server mounted in Finder/Desktop, and I'm wondering if theres an easy way to make it backup a certain folder similar to Time Machine.

    Thanks.

    I second this. If you're crossing insecure links, you can even have it run through the ssh daemon to secure it.

    For a simple rsync, you would do the following in Terminal:
    Code:
    rsync -av /path/to/source /path/to/server

    Forgot all about this thread until now. I wish Macrumors had an option to email me when a thread is replied to.

    Thanks for the application advice.
