Digital Preservation - Server Side

+2 votes
Is there any guidance/best practice on server side archiving of a webserver ? I can think of things such as documenting hardware setup/partitions/process running etc in text files, using Bag-It for important directories (/etc/, /usr/local/, /home, software in /src, etc), but this seems slightly haphazard.

I should say the disk image itself *may* be preserved but I would like to ensure the non-OS parts are preserved in a more accessible form.

And as always, time is short and the budget is small. I'd like to just do enough that whoever may come along in 10 years time doesn't curse me for not saving the one essential thing they need.
