bksh is a simple program designed to be used as a shell by SSH. All it does it to copy its input to a given backup file. Its goal is to allow administrators to create backup-only accounts.
|Operating Systems||POSIX BSD FreeBSD|
Release Notes: The compilation and POSIX issues that appeared on NetBSD have been fixed. A major error where write errors weren't checked has been corrected. Also, the command line configuration of the number of backup files to keep was badly broken and is now fixed. A few handy shell scripts have also been packaged, providing statistics on per-host disk usage and "out of the box" backup of databases and files.
Release Notes: Documentation and code cleanup.
Release Notes: The code has been thoroughly reviewed. This allowed discovery of a minor bug that appeared when a file could be opened without being writable. The shell now exits gracefully instead of entering an endless loop.
Release Notes: The client side backup.sh script now supports on the fly compression and has stricter argument checking. Documentation of that script and installation procedures has been improved.
