    Hi guys,

    We recently had a hosting issue that led to 2 days downtime, we have a busy wordpress site with around 50 new posts on a day and don't want to be in that situation again.

    To avoid being in that position I took out another server with cpanel on and did a full transfer to the new account.
    I understand that I can do daily backups to the new (backup) server but how can I have the backup server see them and automatically restore them so that in the case of switching server there is minimal downtime and no waiting for a restore.

    Maybe someone has an alternative (simple) solution?

    Thinking about this automating the use of the transfer tool under perhaps a cron job would be great.

    Does anyone know how this could be done?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    This would require some custom scripting or programming. You may find someone that can do that here.
    I also encourage you to add a feature request for this at Feature Requests.
