I have a question concerning the Auto Backup Plugin.  It looks like Auto Backup just backups the database. Do you have a suggested method for backup up of jpgs stored in the main "uploads" folder plus custom upload folders within the main "uploads" folder?

I see the Auto Backup plugin will email a copy of the database file so that takes care of that, however, I have many photo intensive sites and I'm looking for the best backup method for their overall website (database file plus all photos uploaded via CMSB) in a method that allows a copy to be made to another location in case the whole server went down.

Thanks!  Tina

Hi, Tina.

Most hosting packages have some form of 'full website' backup scheduling available either by default or as an add-on service. If you don't have direct access to the hosting account backup interface you might contact your hosting service provider and find out how to set that up or how they can automate that task for you.
