Linux-Ubuntu [snippet] : Using Rsync

How to synchronize your local server into remote server?

It’s my question to, I usually just copy paste from my local server to remote server, and it’s something that bored. So I found rsync (that github use), and here’s my little snippet about it.

There is 2 step to make rsync ready.

  1. Set up rsync daemon in your remote server.
  2. Use the rsync in your local server.

Also don’t forget to install rsync, apt-get install rsync

First Step :

root$remote_server : vim /etc/rsync.d
# put this line
motd file = /etc/rsyncd.motd
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
pid file = /var/run/
lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock

   path = /rsync_files_here
   comment = My Very Own Rsync Server
   uid = nobody
   gid = nobody
   read only = no
   list = yes
   auth users = username
   secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.scrt

root$remote_server : rsync --daemon

Second step

root$local_server : rsync -avz /path/to/local/folder/ root@

And, your folder is synced in remote server.
