I wrote a Bash script sometimes ago for the backup of OpenERP 7 (Files + DB) on Debian server. This is for local backup, but you can prolly modify the script for remote backup (put backup on another server), by using rsync. This is automated backup with Cron.

I do use this script right now on our dev server

Maybe you can adapt it for OpenERP v6.

See here :


You can download the script at the bottom of the page.

Sorry, the post is in french, but you can use Google to translate.

Why not use webmin for scheduled backup?
