The Server in question is actually my friends CentOS Web server. But as I'm not apart of the CentOS forums as I don't use it, I thought I'd ask here.

My question is; What backup methods or software do people recommend for backing up a Web Hosting Server? It needs to be easy to restore either individual files and the full backup. And also be able to backup to a local network share.

In the past I have always used tar as explained in and have had no trouble with it, I now currently use Deja-dup on my own personal desktop. However I want to know is this still a good valid method for a web server? or can someone suggest something better. I'd like to be able to do occasional full backups as well as on going incremental backups.
