1) I appreciate Dreamhost
2) I realize that backups are a never-ending foo
3) I want to ensure my data is there when things fail
So I wish to explore creating my own & external-to-Dreamhost backup plan. This is not, by any means, a ding/slam to them. I'm just practical. I know when I make big changes to code, etc.
How can I educate myself on this? Across 3 domains: I know I'm using MySQL, Joomla, Wordpress.
I'd like to be able to make checkpoint backups across all my data on DH. Where the backup data is stored to me locally, on my local disk (I've got plenty).
