You will need to set BACKUP_PATH to be the folder where you would like the backups to be stored and COMPRESS to a value which specifies the compression used. COMPRESS values can be:

  • 0 – no compression.
  • 1 – default compression (usually lzo).
  • gzip – gzip compression.
  • lzo – lzo compression.

Paste the below file into /bin/backup_all and make sure it’s executable.
