Backup Hackup is a course in modular sections, presented as a series of videos which will teach you how to backup your sites automatically and then FTP them to your desired FTP server, INCLUDING your desktop computer.
And optionally to an Amazon S3 account too.
These backups can take place at a time of your choosing, and this can be overnight when it's quiet, or during the day if this suits you. For example, I have a PC at my home / office that's on 24/7 so I prefer for backups to run overnight as they then get sent to that machine via FTP while I'm asleep.
You could also choose to run your backups overnight if you're using "buckets" on your Amazon S3 account.
The course will show you how to achieve this using ALL FREE software and PHP scripts and will be updated as alternative software becomes available.
Once you've got past the hurdles of your initial system set up, then setting up automated backups for each additional site will take you around 10-15 minutes. Then once it's done you can mostly forget about it. (You might want to check up on it every few days until you're confident that all is well.)
I believe that it's something that every web site owner needs to know, and I've done all the hard work to puzzle it out.
Now all you need to do is follow the course through and apply it to your own sites.
I'll show you how to set everything up to do your backups safely and securely and all it will cost is your time.
And you'll then know exactly where your backups are.
