I have VPS(ubuntu) with 2 websites on it. As i am new to VPS'ses (recently i've moved from Shared Hosting) i spent almost 2 weeks on learning how to configure my VPS to run all webs in a way as i wanted. I made a lot of mistakes while configuring VPS, so i were learning it by - reinstalling / configuring / mistaking / reinstalling / configuring etc..
Now all is ok, VPS is running, all the services i were needed also works, a lot of lessons learned - ALL OK.
What is the easiest way of making whole VPS backup?
Can i make VPS backup simply using WinSCP ? I mean connect to root (/) folder and download all VPS files from there?
If yes, how i would restore it later if there will be the need for reinstalling from scratches whole VPS?
Additional info about my situation:
- databases will be backuped by hand (possible through phpmyadmin)
- there are no backup tool in my VPS admin panel(SolusVM)
- i am not using any of GUI cpanel/directadmin/virtualmin etc. just console
