    Hi,

    Just looking for some info on how I back up elasix/asterisk. My understanding is the backup feature backs up the files to the asterisk machines HDD, but I want to backup to an External device or machine, either my lapotop via the GUI, or ideally to create an automatic backup schedule to a NAS on my LAN.
    Would appreciate if someone would give me an overview of how this would work.

    Also, on a similar note, I want to be able to log on to asteris GUI remotely form outside my lan, do I use port 80 as the port to forward on my router ? And is it possible for me to do a back up from a remote location, uploading the backup file from the asterisk server to the machine I am viewing the GUI on ?

    Regards,
    Wexfordman

    rsync is one of the best linux programs for remote backups.
    There are many rsync scripts that you can adapt for your needs.
    Have a look here:

    You can also automate mysql backups, with your own scripts using mysqldump or you can use many other programs. I do it with webmin mysql module. You can schedule mysql backups very easily.
