    Hello Everyone this is Kingpin007 here.
    I am using the latest (non beta) Centminmod. I am 17 years old and have just begun on my linux skills. I am a complete beginner and Centminmod has been a life saver for me. I want to thank every developer who has made this possible.
    But, still I would like to ask for some help. you see I set up my website (DigitalMachine | Take a Tech Break on my Unmanaged VPS (It has 1GB RAM) and I want to setup an automated backup for my website. It runs on wordpress. Do you know of anyway how I can backup all my files to a cloud service or another VPS?
    Like I have a Dropbox account with 50GB disk space so I can backup my website there and easily restore it back. I know there is some way to do it and it involves some cron jobs (I don't know what it means).
    Anyway can you guys include it in the centminmod next release like an option to Backup/Restore a website and so on.

    welcome @Kingpin007 to Centmin Mod and thanks for kind words.

    Backups are not included in Centmin Mod, so you'd have to do that yourself as there's only so much I can offer for free given I am only person who develops Centmin Mod and only in my spare time. However, other members are free to share their own backup scripts etc i.e. @RoldanLT posted links to how to use rsnapshot + backupsy for pull based backups Centminmod based server and Backupsy, What is the most ideal way to backup? | Centmin Mod Community and @Matt posted an auto backup mysql script at Auto Database Backup Script | Centmin Mod Community

    You can grab a Backupsy back server - see step 10 of Getting Started Guide Getting Started with Centmin Mod and then script backups to it.

    If it's just wordpress, you can discuss in blog & cms forums at Blogs & CMS usage | Centmin Mod Community wordpress backup plugin options that other members might use to save wordpress backups to Dropbox, Amazon AWS and or Google Drive etc.

    edit: actually started off the conversation at Wordpress - What Wordpress Backup Plugins are you using ? | Centmin Mod Community
