Can Syncthing be used as a simple web server backup tool? Here is kind of what I want:
- I have a CentOS based ‘web server’.
- I have another CentOS based ‘backup server’.
- I want to periodically (daily, weekly and monthly) copy one directory from ‘web server’ to ‘backup server’. I will basically be running a cronjob on ‘web server’ which will zip all the needed files and dump the needed databases in the said directory.
- I only want to copy data from ‘web server’ to ‘backup server’. I dont want files deleted from ‘web server’ to be deleted from ‘backup server’ as well.
Is Syncthing something that can be used for this? Or I should look at simple rsync based solutions like rsnapshot etc?
