But ALWAYS backup to a offsite or different server as no good doing a backup to the same server/account that is being backed up as if the server goes down then you have lost your accounts and the backups, if you have to backup to the same server/account then once this is complete then save it to your local drive or to a flash/pen drive, so you have a copy to restore if needed.
Actually having a provider backed backup is worthwhile. Of course our backups are directly sent to the offsite storage but if that fry up.
Then at least I can just ticket my managed provider and tell them that I need the VPS to the latest state and go from there. Now of course that would be the "nuclear option" but it's better than losing the "world" right?
