getting backup file offline

Asked by flecktor


i would like to say that turnkey is AWESOME!!!

it saves so much time. :D

we installed the turnkey software for mediawiki
now we wish to download the mySql for backup , at an offline media such as DiskOnKey.

however when connected the DOK it is not showen at /media/

its a windows network, and we can not access the turnkey(ubuntu based).

any recommendations???


b.t.w. installing smb is not a simple option, since there is no internet recognized by the turnkey , which makes the apt-get install smb redundent.

i have found the commands here:

mkdir /mnt/USB
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/USB

then copy the file:

cp /home/ /mnt/USB/

then umount the file:

umount /mnt/USB

Thanks for sharing!

Btw, if you are using windows you might want to check out <a href=>WinSCP</a> as it has support for SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol).

This would allow you to backup over the network...
