plbackitup

plbackitup is a simple Perl script for backing up directories/files to a tarball. It uses a flat file database for selecting what to backup, and features logging, excludes, email notification, FTP backup files, scp files, and removing old tarballs in the backup directory. It can be run as a cron job or manually.

            Sorry to all who download the old v0.3 file, I forgot to uncomment one of the lines that actually "deleted" the old files. The fixed version is now available on the server.
