How to set up the OpenSkills backup server.

This is how we set up the OpenSkills backup server. These steps are performed by the backup administrator:/

Designate a backup server

Nominate one of the OpenSkills servers (currently vole.openskills.org) and give it the additional host name backup.openskills.org/. This means configuring DNS.

Create a base directory for all backups

# mkdir /var/openskills-backup
# chown root:backup /var/openskills-backup
# chmod 2750 /var/openskills-backup

Now the backup server is ready to be configured to backup individual services. To do this, see Using the Backup Server
