Had a discussion with a developer friend this morning about hacking (preventing) and backing up sites and databases.
Here's some of the methods disussed:
PHP scripts hooking into DropBox/Amazon/Google Drive
Manually backing up and saving to NAS.
Manually backing up, syncing to NAS and then syncing to online service
Writing CRON jobs which scan the root for file and folder changes, email you alerts and backup at regular intervals.
Online services such as CodeGuard
What method(s) do you
Old thread, but I think it's worth it.
I just tried CodeGuard, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. It's worth noting that they have a free plan for daily backups on a single website up to 1GB. I'm thinking this is the way to go for those small clients that I have spread in shared hostings.
