What To Backup
In a recent rash of system re-installs, I've learnt the hard way what not to do. I'm keeping this list here for my own future reference in the hopes that I might save myself future headaches.
Before doing any wipe and re-install, the following should always be done:
- Export bookmarks
- Export kwallet
- Export contacts
- Commit all subversion sandboxes
- Backup /home/*
- Backup /usr/local
- Backup /etc
- Backup subversion repositories
- Dump databases
On a personal note, I apologise for my lack of blogging lately. I have a lot about which I want to post and I've been having trouble finding the time. I shall endevour to do better.
