>> so we ALWAYS have the latest database backup stored on a remote server.
So it's only a database backup, not a full backup which includes things such as media, plugins, themes and images?
We have several WP installs on various VPS setups, and on the few occasions we have needed a restore from backup, it was a $25 fee from our host to restore a site from the previous days' backup.
I'm on a VPS too; the company makes complete backs up for free every 24-36 hours. Restoration, if needed, is free.
Maybe I should just leave everything to them an not worry about backing it up myself.
