We have the ability to perform complete account or individual domain accounts already in our Control Panels! And, using the File Manager, it's nothing to copy them to our HD's, external drives, or even compact media.

Sure beats having to pay for something, or to have things farther than arms length, don't you think? http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/images/icons/icon12.gif

Hi Bill, Might be worth setting up a cron job in the cpanel. Not sure how its done, but with a very small script you can set automatic back ups as often as you want & have them emailed to you or sent to another server. I am having a look at this my self at the moment.
Would be nice if there was a control for this in c panel. I will put a posting up for it, to see if someone can help.

Dunno, Chris....setting it up as automated is one thing, but quite honestly, the whole point is to escape the all too predicatable server failures altogether, right?

I think doing it manually and having it done properly is worth the 5 minutes it takes to do it, for peace of mind's sake anyway. That way I know 110% that I have the ability to "restore" my irreplacable assets when they mysteriously "evaporate" .... something potentially devastating that I have experienced only here ......ya think?
