Can Cron (back Ups)

Jul 10, 2009

I want to set up a cron job to make daily back-ups of my database, but by turning my site off first.

This is how I envisage it to work:
1: rename '.htacess' (in public_html folder for the site) to .htaccess-open
2: rename '.htaccess-closed' to .htaccess
// this closes the site down so no-one can write/access the db (they are basically shown a 'site down for maintenance' page - I already have the code for this)

3: mysqldump --opt (DB_NAME) -u (DB_USERNAME) -p(DB_PASSWORD) > /path/to/dbbackup-$(date +%m%d%Y).sql
// this backs up the database

4: wait for 3 to finish
5: rename '.htaccess' to .htaccess-closed
6: rename '.htacess-open' to .htaccess
// this opens the site back upIs this easy enough to do? Anyone got any tips/pointers?

Does Your Provider Back Up Your VPS Or Do You Back It Up Yourself

Nov 10, 2009

Many of the VPS providers I've looked at don't back up the servers that house the VPSs and as such don't back up the VPSs either - have you considered what would happen should the VPS itself be erased (such as what happened to vaserv/fsckvps not too long ago)?

VPS Back Ups

Apr 24, 2009

I've always thought, and it is like that, that the back ups are part of any quality VPS Hosting service. But see this below. It is part of the TOS, listed by quite popular vps hosting provider.

"Your use of - - - servers and services is at your sole risk. - - - is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your VPS. While complimentary backups may be provided by - - -, you agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred to/from and maintained on your VPS and agree that it is your own responsiblity to take backups of data residing on your VPS."

Where Do You Store Your Back Ups

Oct 1, 2009

I would like some tips on how to create back ups with WHM/cPanel on a Reseller if you could.

Also where to store them?

I was thinking of storing them up on a VPS or Dedi server that just has backups or should I buy a enternal Hard Drive for my computer and store them on that? I have a 500GB Hard Drive.

WHM Back Up Retention

Oct 29, 2008

how the backup in WHM works as far as data retention. For example, if I select the "daily backup" option, does

- WHM create a new backup for each day every day moving foward until the drive it uses is filled up, OR

- WHM creates a backup for each day of the week, overwriting the previous week's same day data.

Back To Basics

Feb 11, 2007

I am so mixed-up now that its hard to even figure out what i need to know, so let me tell you a story.....

It started about a week ago, when i first started on the server configuration module of my CIW course. I began to get confused concerning the topic of permissions and access levels in IIS 5. Because of this confusion i started to backtrack what i actually knew (or rather, what i thought i knew) about networks. I now find myself realizing that i am not even sure about the basic
types of networks. Anyway, thank you for your patience so far, and without further a-do here comes the obligatory questions.

I thought that a peer to peer network was any network without a dedicated server, so the hosts (computers) on the network communicated with each other directly. I also thought that once you added a server to the network, all the shares that were once stored on the individual computers are now moved to the server, and that the individual hosts no longer actually communicate with each other to access files, printers, etc.

However, now I am starting to think that i am wrong about this, and that the hosts may indeed still keep some shares on themselves to be accessed by the other hosts on the network.

It is this method of ACCESS that is confusing me.

Do the hosts now have to ask the server to fetch the shares on the other hosts, or can each host still have direct access to any other host?

A book i have states "a peer-to-peer network does not regulate user access from a central point". To me, this implies that using a server on the network somehow centralizes access, BUT ACCESS TO WHAT??. Does this mean access to the server that has just been installed, or that the server is responsible for giving permission for host "A" to connect to host "B" to access the shares stored on host "B

The same book also states (regarding user-level-access and some kind of access list)...."this access list can be central to a particular server or to an entire network"
Does it mean that this list can be either stored on the SERVER (CENTRAL) or EACH HOST("entire network").

I hope one of you guys can figure out,at least, where i am getting confused because the more i read the more i seem to tie myself up

Emails Seem To Be Bouncing Back

Feb 25, 2009

The issue is that a lot of my emails seem to be bouncing back at the moment with the subject 'Subject: Warning: could not send message for past 1 day'

Could anyone explain why this might be the case? I've had a look online and the only thing I can think it might be is that my email address has been gray listed. To solve this it was recommended to use a SPF Record.

I did not really want to start messing around with my DNS before I could get some confirmation that this is the case. Though if there is another explaination please can you let m know.

The emails that I have sent have all had pdf's attached to them.

2 Apache Boxes That Back Each Other Up

Feb 28, 2008

I have a managed box with rackspace (green) On this I am running a couple of distance learning sites e.g (moodle on apache) and video streaming (lighttpd). This is all working fine.

I'm now looking at moving our "normal" website (drupal on apache) to a managed server with rackspace. (call this blue)

The 2 different parts will be running on 2 different machines, but I'd like to be able to move sites/applications between them if needs be due to load/work/failure

For example if the normal website server goes down, temporarily move that on to the distance learning/media server or vice versa.
Or if after a while we get more traffic on the distance learning server than the website, move the media server over to the normal website server.

Hope that makes sense - I'm not looking at a proper cluster here, but 2 servers I can juggle things between if needs be.

The way I'm thinking of doing it is having both machines with the same setup (apache port 80 and lighttpd port 81 for streaming)
And use Vhosts on both machines setup for all the sites.
i.e. and each have vhosts setup for, and

This way, whichever server the dns for points to goes there, and the same for other services.

Then do a nightly backup of the mysql databases to the other server and keep files rsynced.

Then if a server goes down or I want to move x from green to blue I just load the backup of green database for the relevant application on the blue server and point the dns entry for the app to blue.

Server Back Setup

May 20, 2007

We have 2 harddrives on the server and a private network on the back end with limited storage space. Hard drives are SATA II (not in raid). As far as we know, 2nd harddrive is not used for anything yet.

We are new at this and any configuration suggestions would be helpful. What kind of a backup setup would you recommend? What kind of schema ie. full backups, incremental, data backup only, public_html backups?

CPanel Back-up Script

Sep 1, 2007

I have a shared account which I would like to back-up on a cron job.

I know several people have tried to create these type of scripts but they dont seem to do the following:

1) Full cPanel back-up (files/mysql etc)

2) FTP the back-up to a remote server

3) Delete the back-up on the local server

4) Delete the old back-up on the remote server

Does anyone know of a script that will do the above or several scripts I could use?
Webhostgear have one but that only moves the back-up file between servers, it doesn't backup or delete.

Getting Our Server Back By Any Means

Sep 16, 2007

just wonder if anyone ran into this problem. We were collocating our server with a "certain" provider and decided to move it elsewhere due to their lack of service. Everything was going OK even the outrageous termination fee and the shipping fee that we had to pay. However, after the host received the payment they went completely silent on us ignoring all of our emails and phone calls. I've spoken with our lawyer who estimated the legal actions against them could cost us thousands of dollars. The physical cost of the server was about $2,000 so I'm not sure if legal action would be worth it. Anyone has any suggestions on what else we can try to get our server back.
