    VPS backup to HDD


    VPS backup to HDD

    Hey guys, I just have a quick question, since all of you are smart with this type of stuff.

    I own a VPS, and I because I have alot of information on there, I want the backups to run via my HDD. Is this possible?

    It doesn't matter if it's manually or automatic. I just want to know if there's a software out their that basically downloads my backups from my Linux VPS to my HDD via my windows computer..

    Thanks for your help.


    Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    Hello,

    You should have a backup task (by example daily) on your VPS to caopy all of the desired data to some FTP folder. After that you can use FTP client as FileZilla to get your files on the local PC.

    Well you can always compress what it is that you want to back up and say download it via FTP. If your vps has something like cpanel it will be more convenient, as there are custom scripts to take backup and such.

    you need to backup your data, but instead of paying out loads for another server to back up to, you could back up to your local machine, or you could just buy a cheap dedi from ovh/kimsufi or online ??

    this might help, but make sure everything is backed up, people think ill be okay, it wont happen to me, and it always does!

    making daily backups will slow up your vps, make it weekly or create backup of important files on daily base.
