Backing up data off-site

Hello,

I read your page and set up the scripts without an issues.

However on the last line you mention:

You could also add a task that then uploads the dump file to an off-site server using rsync or scp, but that's up to you!

This is something I would like to do - but I would like to backup on either Google Drive or Onedrive or even Dropbox. There is a program called rclone which acts as an API to these services.

Am I able to install this on my account using the bash console?

Thanks

Hi there, as long as you can install it without needing root permissions it should be fine...
