Great! This gives me a good start and points me in a good direction to 
working with rsync.  But, have you actually used this with IC or do you 
even have a setup that requires you? If not, no big, just curious.

So, with that said, I am thinking the three things to rsync would be:

This is all based on default RH 7.3 RPM install:

1. /var/lib/interch/store
2. /etc/interchange.cfg
3. /var/www/html/store

I'm also looking into some MySQL replication and possible fail over, 
which should handle any db issues; but that's obviously separate from 

I know there are also files (using the default RedHat 7.3 RPM install) 
located in /usr/lib/interchange. These seem to be all the base IC files 
and probably don't merit my rsync attention since they are not really 
ever changed. Right?

Thank you! It'll be a good day when we receive our first order. :)
