So, I feel like I accomplished a lot this weekend… Not that many would care, but for those of you interested in backing up your godaddy shared hosting accounts, or for those interested in streaming media at home, this is what I did:
- First, I got my mini-mac server up and running as both an FTP server and a Rivet Streaming server for myself. This also included hooking my phone into Magic Jack through this server so I don’t have to pay attention to all their ad streaming on my own personal computer
- I then installed Jenkins-CI to manage backing up my GoDaddy databases, files; all stored on my private FTP folders, so I can manage and access these backups at any time. This includes the awesome crontab like scheduling available in Jenkins-CI, to back my sites up 2 times a day
- By the way, it just feels so damn good to not have to manage this stuff anymore, just keep an eye on it and make sure that: a.) My TV Shows and Movies through digital backups remain available, b.) Phone stays on, c.) Sites get backed up a couple times a week!!!
Finally, I still have more stuff to do, but luckily this is a very short list. I would like to install the same backup mechanisms on my other web servers to make sure my site databases are backed up on an hourly (or so) basis. These sites have more users than my godaddy sites and they are more dynamic in nature. So I will be doing this next weekend.
Last, but not least, if you would like me to post any of the specific information listed above like techniques or software used, then let me know and I’ll be sure to post about it!
