I’ve searched and read a lot of post on the forum and the mighty Google…although everyone seems to be trying to do something grander than what I want to do. I have found these threads that I think are what I want/need but I’m not sure if they are what I want.
https://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-142149.html (which lead me to https://www.interworks.com/blog/jkhalaj/2014/07/02/use-dreamobjects-backup-your-mysql-database-php-script for MySQL backup to DreamObjects which I hope is what I want…not sure though…)
https://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-141371.html (which I think is moving my /home/user/(All Files) over to dreamobjects and is what I want, although not too sure)
So here is what I am trying to do. I want a fully automated way to backup my website and MySQL Databases with the ability to access my backups to download/delete/modify whenever I want. Currently I manually backup the sites that I manage, which is growing and becoming unmanageable, with FTP(WinSCP) and mysqldump utility. This takes a great deal of time. Will DreamObjects allow me to do this and how. Let’s say I’m in need of more detailed guidance than what I have currently found through Google. So please, no “Use the rsync command and there you go” type of replies.
I was going to use a cronjob to put my mysqldump in a folder in my home/user/bkfolder which would delete the file after 3 days, although I don’t want to be in violation of the TOS. I use shared hosting and have VPS accounts that I’m managing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
