DreamHost Backup Policy

Hey, what’s DH current policy on backups? I know you can’t just use your account for endless backups but if I want to run a cron and get a site backup for like a couple weeks and cycle them out is this frowned upon? Also, did the voting system disappear where you can vote on stuff? I can’t find it in the panel.

Backups shouldn’t be stored on our web servers. Policy aside, your data’s safer if you keep it in a separate location. Your computer is a great second location; another is DreamObjects.

The suggestion system in the panel was retired because it was a kind of clunky interface, and had relatively little participation. It’s been replaced by the Suggestions section of this forum: if you’ve got a suggestion, make a thread for it!
