I recently purchased a subscription for a dedicated server using ubuntu 16.04. It is a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 with no added programs. I am new to linux and want to backup the entire server as it is now so that if I make any mistake while using it and I can just rollback the server to the fresh install and start from the beginning again.
I understand that the best way to do this i with a "tarball" backup. I need the command to create the tarball and the command to execute it so the server is returned to its original state before I made any changes.
Hello from Poland. I would be glad to carefully guide you through this. Please see my profile for some references. Also, i have an ultimate suggestion that may interest you in case of a dedicated server. Thank you.
