This class can backup files using rsync.

It reads a .INI file with configuration values that define at least the source and destination directories to backup.

The class executes thr rsync program to synchronize the files between the source and destination directories.

A list of files may be excluded from the backup by defining them in a separate exclude file.

A log file records all performed actions. A separate PHP file is created with values of the current backup session that may be read next time the backup process is executed.

Rsync is a program that is used to efficiently transfer files between directories that may even reside in disks of different computers.

This class implements an automatic backup process that uses rsync to synchronize the file structure of the origin directory with a backup directory.

The backup process is configurable to the point of allowing to exclude files that do not need to be saved.
