Sometimes we have a choice of only backing up some of the selected files from an
application or some other very crucial files. Below is how I do it in a real quick way:
cat >> /etc/bkup.conf
Then I run tar command with -T flag pointing to the file which contains
the list. In my case it is /etc/bkup.conf
tar -cjf bkup-WebConfig-`date +%Y-%m-%d`.tar.bz2 -T /etc/bkup.conf
And you have your selective backup ready!
