I have a moodle site running at a production linux server. I want to create a staging and another development server as well. I guess I will be looking for a GIT like continuous integration platform to migrate my updated and new files to staging and development server in real time.
Let me tell you what I have achieved till now and the problems :
1. I am using rsync to copy my moodledata (~ 40-50 GB) every week from production to other servers
2. The disadvantage of rsync is that this approach invariably moves all the files (modified/unmodified) and thus takes a long time even if no changes were made to the moodledata folder.
Can you please suggest a better approach to backup my moodledata (can't use GIT as it has size restrictions)
