    Hey,

    I was wondering whats out there for scheduled/automated cpanel backup for CPanel clients. I have some clients who want to backup (outside of my own backup) to a remote server.

    They want to
    - Backup MySQL DB's Hourly
    - Backup The site content every month

    They run a popular forum, and they want backups that will fill in for the 'gaps' for daily backups.

    Is there something out there? Already a script that someone wrote? A backup service?

    If you're using bqbackup, you could offer them their own backup account for a nominal fee. They offer their proprietary backup control panel for an extra $20 a month so that you can divide up your backup space into user accounts for just such a purpose.

    Just ask email sales@bqinternet.com for all the details, if interested.

    For MySQL, I find the following script is very good:
    www.mysqlbackup.info

    I auto-backup all my DB's to a different server on a daily basis.

    Not sure about a similar script that does the same for full /public_html/
    directory backups, but would love to know.

    Wow, that looks like a pretty impressive, but complicated program. Did it take you a long time to get it all working? Also, what are you running it on? I'd want to run it on WinXP and also CentOS 4.x. Sounds like both of those would have to be manual installs.

    Hi,

    It looks more complicated than it is.:)
    You will have it up and running within a day.
    I have it running on a P4 2Ghz with 512MB with some BIG hd's inside.
    It runs under Linux and backups all my servers and home network to.
    With the web-interface you can configure everything, manage users and give them access to backups and restores.
    The program is very efficient and does not store doubles so space is not wasted. Also no agents are needed on the client machines.

    Ronald

    Thanks for the info, I definitly want to try this. My main host machine for this would be a WinXP box. I didn't see any install version of Windows. It is a "do it on your own" kind of install for windows I guess?

    Thanks again. :)

    Ok whos doing these installs/setups for a fee ? Anyone?
    I got thru the entire install process in 1 unit and the configure.pl ran fine - I feel like such a NEWB now I cant get it to execute so I cannot go forward any further. Im lost man I wish some of these great programs were a bit easier to use :confused:
