bakonf is a small script designed to make minimal backups of the
configuration files of a GNU/Linux or Unix-like system. Its aim is
to use various methods to reduce the size of the backup to a
reasonable minimum, in order to be useful for remote/unattended
servers, while still backing up enough to recreate the system (with
effort) in a blank state. The actual user data backup/restore is a
separate matter, which bakonf doesn't deal with.
The contents of the archives created contain enough information so that the system admininistrator can restore the system to a working, but blank state. Beside the actual information from the file system, it can store output of arbitrary commands, for example:
- partition table
- various /proc information
- pci & usb device list
- Python 2.7/3.5+
For more information, see the user manual in the doc directory, or read the documentation online.
