Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And duply On Debian Squeeze

When you rent a dedicated server nowadays, almost all providers give
you FTP backup space for your server on one of the provider’s backup
systems. This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and duply
to create encrypted (so that nobody with access to the backup server
can read sensitive data in your backups) backups on the provider’s
remote backup server over FTP. duply is a duplicity wrapper script that
allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to
type in any passwords).
