Building off of this discussion, it would be extremely helpful if there was automatic backup of db files AND site template files, either via a module or built into processwire. Backups could be scheduled and work in the background.

The wordpress plugin BackWPup is superb at this. A user can automatically backup to several different places: the current server, another server, dropbox, by email, amazon services, etc.

I will check out that WordPress plugin you mentioned. I think this is a good idea for a ProcessWire module, but probably not something for the core modules just because this seems like more a function of hosting, backup utilities, cron jobs, rsync, etc. The same tools we've always used for this. But one can never have too many backups ... more backups and ways to backup are always good (so long as they are secure).
