Here is a simple and easy-to-follow method to backup your Debian 11 server:


1. Create a folder on your server where you want to store the backup files. For example:

sudo mkdir /backup

2. Install tar, if tar is not already installed on your server, install it using the following command:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tar

3. To create a backup of your entire server, including all files and directories, use the following command:

sudo tar -cvpzf /backup/backup.tar.gz --exclude=/backup --one-file-system /

This command will create a compressed backup file (backup.tar.gz) in the /backup folder.


That's it! This method will create a full backup of your Debian 11 server, and is simple and easy to implement. If there is any problems please contact us.
