Backing up CMSMS thru SSH

It is a time and error saver to do many operations like backup, upgrade, transfer, etc thru SSH.

For example, to backup all of your file to a compressed file that is then easy to download by FTP, use:

tar -czvf NameOfBackupAndDate.tgz --absolute-names --preserve-permissions --preserve-order *


for a list of other useful operations, consult the CMSMS wiki.
