We have a dedicated server running *nix/apache/plesk with 100 or so customer sites on it.
I am looking for a way to automatically archive the whole kaboodle ready for me to download overnight as a back up, (The sites are mainly small, and I have cable modem so I think I should be able to do this relatively quickly).
My main reason for doing this, rather than (or in addition to ) the back up services offered by the server management company, is just extra security.
If they screw up, I go bust! therefore 'Belt and Braces' needed.
I don't know too much about *nix, but can do simple stuff on the server via Webmin and Plesk.
I would appreciate the advice of those better qualified in this area (that means almost everyone on the forum, I suspect!)
