How to Use Amazon S3 to Backup Server Data

Amazon S3 is a reliable object storage service provided by Amazon, offering a secure solution for backing up your server data. To back up your server data to Amazon S3 directly, you can use AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) to sync your server files with an S3 bucket. Here's how you can do it.
To get started, download and install the AWS CLI from the official AWS documentation onto your server.
Once installed, open your terminal and run the aws configure command to input your AWS access key, secret key, default region, and output format.

Next, create a new S3 bucket using the aws s3api create-bucket command. Replace your-bucket-name with a unique name for your new bucket. You can then use the aws s3 cp command to upload files or directories from your server to the S3 bucket. For example, you can run aws s3 cp /path/to/file s3://bucket-name/ to upload a single file.
