# What directory sites do I require to support?

What are the directory sites one should support, in order to have a backup of all user-generated documents?

From a vanilla debian install, I can do sufficient proper to get the plans that I desire. So if I do not intend to backup the whole system, where done in the filesystem do user-generated arrangement and also information documents stay?

It relies on what you suggest by "customer - created". A lot of the arrangement you will certainly have have to do with services/daemons and also applications working on your system. A lot of them place their arrangement in/ etc The customer - based applications have their arrangement in your house directory site (generally in a application directory site). Yet you can have some applications that additionally store their information in/ var/lib or/ var/spool.

So the solution, is : "it relies on what you're working on your equipment".

You'll be supporting some 'waste' doing this ... yet if you simply backup every one of /home, /etc, and also /var/ you need to have every little thing (unless you recognize you place something elsewhere). You'll intend to omit /var/tmp, /var/run/, /var/lock without a doubt. Afterwards I would certainly read Luc's reply.

In short, you intend to backup /home (usually where customer - created documents stay), /etc and also /usr/local. The last 2 will certainly backup your arrangement documents. I would certainly advise making use of some backup software program like sbackup which does what you require and also is very easy to make use of.
