Backup you VPS to Google Drive

If you only have a small amount of data to backup, Google Drive is actually quite a decent alternative, but you will need to install a few tools to you VPS.

With the tool rclone (rsync for cloud), you can upload your files to Google Drive, Amazon S3, Dropbox and a few more. The procedure is almost the same no matter of the cloud provider you go for.

Just goto: http://rclone.org/

Install rclone as described and then setup a cronjob to sync the files that you want to Backup.

My crontab to backup the automysqlbackup folders:

# m h  dom mon dow   command
  0 *   *   *   *    export PATH=$PATH:/home/siho/bin && rclone -q sync /var/lib/automysqlbackup/ remote:Backup/automysqlbackup
