Rsync Backup configuration

Apologies, I’m not very skilled at this.

Nextcloud version 13.don’t know. How to find out?
Operating system and version NCP raspbian based image
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): don’t know what this is
PHP version (eg, 7.1): or this

The issue you are facing: Can’t figure out how to configure backups of the data folder using rsync. I’ve put up a separate RPi on my home LAN with much more storage than the nextcloud box which has 200GB, easily enough for my needs. RSYNC is able to write to this remote drive.

I’d like to be able to specify when backups run, and which are kept. Ideally I’d like to run at midnight every night, keep every copy for the last week, and then rolling over so I just have the friday nights until they get to be a month old, so at any given time (after the first month) I’ll have ten backups.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): It’s a keyboard:chair interface problem. I fancy my chances at coding it Python and running a cron job, but it’ll take me a while as I’m no coding ninja. Is this functionality available?

Steps to replicate it:

  1. install ncp
  2. make rsync work
  3. try to schedule backups
