Backup Redmine appliance to EBS volume?

I have an EBS volume attached to my Redmine instance. How can I copy/backup my Redmine files to the EBS volume? (I have seen various suggestions, but with things changing so quickly I want to be sure that I am doing this the proper way for the most current version of the TKL Redmine appliance).

I know how to use mysql dump, rsync, and cron (if that helps).

By the way...

ebsmount-manual --format=ext3 /dev/sdf

results in formatting and mounting of the EBS volume at


This seems to be a good start.
