    Thank you

    Here is what I wrote:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    DESDIR=/home/nginx/domains/mydomain.com/backup/
    S3DIR="s3://mylocation/mysite/"
    
    # RSYNC to AWS S3
    s3cmd sync --skip-existing $DESDIR $S3DIR
    Not sure if it's right, but it's been working for over a year. I have a 10 day retention policy setup on the S3 folder itself.

    Also, be mindful of the costs involved with syncing whole directories with S3, the costs can soon mount up, as they bill for each request type.
