Hey, i just finished setting up my new server. It's a Linux Debian server and i think that having a backup would be nice. The only backup solution i know is reoback. That script copies all needed files and pushed them to a remote server via FTP. Do you know a better backup solution for Linux? Would be great if one could create an image of the server or something like that. It important that i can restore the server in just a few minutes of work.
Has anyone an idea?

I only know of partimage for disk backups. You can find it on a system Rescue distro. It is fast as norton ghost, has network backup capabilities, but some disadvantages such as backing up only partitions, not full disks, and i remember it cares a lot aboit partition sizes and names.
Based on Partimage, you have the Clonizilla Distro.
Now, you'll have to find a way to make your server boot on PXE agent or something in order to send you Disk / Partition image. I don't know of any tool which can make a disk image of a mounted volume.
