It doesn't really matter which distro you use. A backup script for Ubuntu should work for CentOS if the dependencies are installed.

Example for a backup script:
Code:
zip -r /dir/to/save/the/zip/file/$(date +'%Y%m%d').zip /what/directory/should/be/backupped

That's all you need. I've been doing this locally and on my server for years. But I use a different compression.

One small note: Even if many don't believe it, Google (if you enter Linux questions or error messages) will give you a lot of help. The community is small, but very strong with many forums and wikis. Maybe google next time. Please use it as motivation next time to find out for yourself :)
Have fun with your new operating system! It's really awesome!

I agree with @askalan . Whenever I ran into some kind of a problem, I usually managed to find answers pretty quickly by browsing through previous threads on Ask Ubuntu, Ubuntu Forums or Linux Mint Forums. No matter what you're looking for, there's a great probability that the very same question has been asked before and already has an answer. :)

Your script works on an external HDD?
I want to do a script on a centOS to make a backup 1/week on an external HDD :D
