Subject:   Websites inside jails - backing up
Message-ID:  <>

Currently I have a few virtual websites running off one instance of=
 apache... I have a few public IPs available, and would like to create=
 jails to house the websites. I tested this by creating a jail, putting it=
 on one of the extra IP addresses, and running apache from within the=
 jail... works fine.

Right now, to backup a website (currently on the host server) I copy the=
 important things to a temp directory, including (and most importantly) the=
 htdocs directory, create an iso, then burn to a CDRW.

But what about when the site is within a jail? I notice I can get to=
 /path/to/jail/path/to/htdocs, so can I similarly just copy the appropriate=
 files/directories for backup purposes? Or is there something magical about=
 being "inside" the jail that makes this difficult or improper?
