System Configuration Backup - Pointing to External Location

TMADOCTHOMAS

Hello,

I'm trying to follow the best practice of pointing system configuration backups to external locations, but unfortunately the only option is to point the backups to a web server and I am not an IIS expert. We have a site I use to upload files over FTP to filers when doing upgrades, but now I need files to be written to this site.  I was able to turn on basic auth and use a domain account that I made a local admin, but I don't want to preserve this configuration since it is unsecure. I tried enabling SSL but I got an auth error. Any recommendations?

Hi , I am trying to accomplish the same in our environment.  We know FTP is not a secure protocol and your user name and password is in clear text.   If we were to use IIS, you will need to use https and  build your own web api to allow POST request.  Is there any other secure and easier method to upload configuration backup files ?

Wow @GidonMarcus this looks incredibly detailed and helpful. Thank you very much!
