Can anyone recommend a good backup software for Linux? I have a few servers. One with lighty and one with apache. I want someting that will do backups of the web directories, configuration files and eventually a mySQL or postgresSQL database. Are there any suggestions?

R1soft is a good backup software. It works well and tons of hosting shops are using it for Linux and Windows. Depending on what you're backing up, maybe just try an rsync script.

I've used R1soft before and it's great. Does a fantastic job with SQL databases and backups in general. A little on the expensive side, but worth the money if you really need the organziation and tools it provides. Rsync works okay, but it doesn't work well with large amounts of data > 100GB and you don't get an index of backups.
You are forced to write some shell scripts to move around your data.
