Hello all,

I am wondering if it would be possible to write a script or a cronjob in
linux using Rsync to run an automated backup of a server, or serveral
servers if possible. I am very new with writing scripts and such, so any
help or suggestions with how to get started would be great!!!

Thanks ahead of time for the help!!!
