I make a local backup & scp in a cron job to another server
but its up to you how you want to impliment your disaster recovery

if server 1 crashes server 2 all ready has the backups just restore all ( they ones from the crashed sever since they are in there own directry)
same DNS

Yes now I make rsync full server backup but how to restore it after crash or something ? Mean with CPanel accounts tar.gz it is easy to restore but rsync copy all 1:1 ... Is not CPanel backup with copy of /var/lib/mysql quite enought for a server restore after clean install of OS and CPanel ?



Thanks.
