    FreeBSD - FileSystem Dump Issue

    Dump works on complete file systems only, I only want dumps of a particular folder, so if the folder in question is not currently it's own filesystem, what are the steps to make it one ?

    well that's kind of advanced for me...but, you could create a new partition and copy the folder to it and mount that partition...other than that I have no clue
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX

    yup, that's what I had to do alright

    p.s.

    if you add an additional IDE hard drive and you don't see it in fdisk or label editor of /stand/sysinstall, you didn't add them correctly, did you ?

    Would anyone here know why rsync would send files to a remote server even though they are unchanged ? I'll run rsync commands back to back with no change in the files and 3/4 of the files get re-sent...

    here's the command:
    rsync -p --password-file=/etc/rs.xxx --links --verbose --compress --stats --recursive --delete /usr/web3/ admin@111.222.333.444::www

    well I've never used it before...but is it read-only or does it change the file times causing them not to match and resending?

    Why don't you use tar if all you want is part of a file system
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Well someone took over my test box but Waldo2k2 probably hit the nail on the head, I'll try it with the -t option.

    I'm not using tar, because I don't think it does incrementals, besides then I'd have to ftp the tarball to the remote server correct ?
