Thanks for a completely USELESS response, if you can't answer someone's question with a HELPFUL it is better you keep quiet.
I have no interests in how many multiple time-stamped backups you are taking and as I said it is the RESTORE that matters.
I am sure we can get you a badge of some sort for your ability to do something technical for the sake of it, perhaps next you could copy the files manually too, I mean why bother with a backup plugin at all?
You could backup to 43 separate locations but if the restore bombs out then there is not much point.
Look I am quite capable of doing this manually, it does not work.
You have obviously never moved a commercial site with 10,000+ pages or a site where every second costs money.
If you had any experience of IT where your job depended on it you would know that 30 minutes is completely unacceptable as a restore time and on such sites it would be more like 8 hours, why, because Dreamhost does not work.
It is not just big sites, small sites have issues too.
The issue here is one of Dreamhost reliability and compatibility.
Wordpress is an industry standard and Dreamhost has over 600,000 of them, so it needs to get behind ONE free plugin and make sure it is supported.
For me it is quite simple, if I can backup and restore a site promptly with just a few clicks from Hostgator to Hostmonster with no problems then I should be able to do the same with Dreamhost.
It is not as if doing it manually works anyway, PHMyadmin crashes.
I have tweaked the PHP.INI settings, nothing works, manual setup, free plugins, paid plugins.
At the end of the day this is an issue of competition, if the same hosting offering works on Hostgator and Hostmonster then it needs to work on Dreamhost.
The fact that Dreamhost support (which now takes at least 24 hours to reply to each reply to a ticket) don't have ONE restore plugin they can recommend and support is an issue and that is the issue I raised.
