We've just had a hard drive crash on one of our servers. Good thing that we backup hourly. Still, it's a pain in the butt, and a reminder that redundancy is good. I've been looking at a *lot* of automated utilities for backing up sites, and I'd like to get your opinion on what your favourite one is. My server is linux, my backup machine is PC. I'd like to backup the whole server's worth of sites on a site-per-site basis, and the ability to compress would be nice. Bonus if the utility can also dump the mysql database to an sql file in the site archive. I suspect that I might be looking at a php+ chron job, but thought that it might be nice to have an all-in-one that runs on my PC. What have you tried that you like? What do you recommend that I stay clear of? Frank Marion lists at frankmarion.com Keep the signal high.
