bakonf - A configuration file backup tool

This python script creates a backup of selected configuration files, plus some extra informations about the system it runs on, to create a small rescue archive. This archive can be used to recreate the system, in case of emergencies. Of course, since it doesn't backup your data, all the data you had is gone, but at least you can put the server up again quickly in a blank state - this is very useful for a firewall, SMTP proxy, squid machine, etc. These machines don't store data, they only forward data.

Code: on gitub. Please report issues there as well.

Downloads: still here. The latest version is 0.6.0, although a release is due for a while now, at which point the downloads will move to github as well.

Requirements: bakonf can run ony any Unix-like system which has python installed, version 2.4 or later (including 3.x versions), and the pyyaml and bsddb3 Python libraries.

Documentation: You can read the documentation online at readthedocs.
