Backing up data files?

Backing up data files?
tar czpf /home/backup/gforum_data.tar.gz /home/wm/cgi-bin/forum/admin/attachments /home/wm/cgi-bin/forum/admin/defs /home/wm/cgi-bin/forum/admin/GForum/Config/Data.pm

I've been using this code, but wasn't sure if I'd read somewhere that certain files had been moved about. Is the above cronjob ok for backing up all necessary data files?

That'll do it - though if you want to include any template customizations, you might want to add /home/wm/cgi-bin/forum/admin/templates/*/local/

Also keep in mind that you need database backups in addition to the above.
