    back up web server

    we're hoping to run the school's website from a dedicated server in (a dmz) in school. it will be built on a MySql database via a CMS. it will need to be backed up regularly. any suggestions?

    A simple one would be to to make a copy of the site files via ftp and then export the SQL database to a file. Do this with my joomla sites and it works ok.

    Then if the site dies / or you need to move to another host you just upload the files and repolulate the sql database.

    you can dump the mysql database to a file with the 'mysqldump' command.

    MySQL Administrator can also set up an automatic backup job for your database. This comes in a Windows flavour too

    Re: back up web server

    How about using mysqlhotcopy to backup the database to the spare server and using rsync to synchronise the webpages, using a script that backs it up once per day.
