NAME

Brackup::Target::Sftp - backup to an SSH/SFTP server

DESCRIPTION

Backup to an SSH/SFTP server, using the Net::SFTP::Foreign perl module.

EXAMPLE

In your ~/.brackup.conf file:

  [TARGET:server_sftp]
  type = Sftp
  path = /path/on/server
  sftp_host = server.example.com
  sftp_user = user

At this time there is no 'sftp_password' setting - you are encouraged to use ssh keys for authentication instead of passwords. Alternatively, you can enter your password interactively when prompted.

CONFIG OPTIONS

type

(Mandatory.) Must be "Sftp".

path

(Mandatory). Server-side path to write backups to (may be ".").

sftp_host

sftp_port

Port on which to connect to remote SSH/SFTP server.

Username to use to connect.

no_filename_colons

Flag - set to false (0/false/no) to indicate that the remote filesystem supports colons (':') in filenames. Default: 1.
