What's the best way to sync files locally?
I'm running rsync over ssh to backup files from a server. Now I'm setting
up a new server, so I rsynced to it as well. The files end up in a subdir
of my home directory, because my account is being used for the rsync. I've
been using cp -R to put them in the right place on the server and the chmod
and chown to get the perms right, but I'm thinking there has to be a way to
sync the files locally so that only the ones that have changed or are new
have to be copied to the right place.
I can use find to set the perms, but I'm not sure how to sync the files.
This is unix, so there's got to be a built-in utility that does this, but I
can't seem to find it.
