    Hi guys,

    I'm not an experienced sysadmin so I'm looking for ways to backup my linode VPS and I'll be happy if you can answer my questions.
    First at all I'd like to save backups on a separated server and give cPanel users an option to see the backups which have been taken and restore them so I thought in Backupsy.
    I'm thinking of the following:
    1. Sign up for a Backupsy VPS
    2. 512MB Memory Upgrade for R1Soft ($4/month)
    3. Buy a R1Soft license on R1SoftStorage
    5. Configure backups to save them on Backupsy VPS

    Then, I'd like to give to the cPanel users an extra option to save the backups where they want using cPProtect (they can save their backups on Dropbox for example)

    Do you think there is a best solution? I find this the cheapest and faster way to enable remote backups on my VPS

    RE: Backupsy - They're pretty reasonable price wise, but my own preference is going to be ramnode. Again, totally a preference thing there. I can see how backupsy is rather popular.

    Instead of going that route, take a look at cpremote. Again, personal preference there, but the cost is much more reasonable than r1 is, and it's a good deal easier to work with. At least do yourself the favor of giving their trial a shot before turning it down.
