Use bacukppc, it'll do all of that and more (unattended
backups, integrated http svr usable by users (or not),
hardlinking unmodified files (dramatically reducing the
size of all backups), auto management of backups (no need
to restore a full one, just restore the file/whole day 
you want), backups compression during night, etc).

It is easy to configure (you might have to change the disks
formatting options (more inodes), though), and _very_ easy
to use.
The kind of software you totally forget :)
