sounds like it. Do you guys use cpanel?
I noticed you guys use a customized version, with Fantastico, but is it cpanel?
I am used to using cpanel thats why I wondered, anything else would be a learning curve. lol Besides, as many times as I've had to switch hosts for various reasons, nothing beats cpanel's server to server transfer script, cpanel is pretty much the standard for all that these days.
Now this is a question for any hosting provider, when a host says they offer daily/weekly/monthly backups, are they talking about that script in cpanel? or are they talking about their own backups?
It doesn't happen often, but like last year, my host went out of business. then I moved to a new town so I was between banks and couldn't pay my bill exactally on the day the billing cycle starts, Luckily they were able to transfer everyone over, but that got me to thinking,
because during that whole move, switching bank accounts, etc etc, I ended up loosing my blog, my forum, and everything else. During that particular time, my computer was also in the shop being fixed, and some idiot over there mixed around my C: and D: drives. he formatted my D: which had my site backups on it, since I can't afford an external drive, so everything was lost including my backups.
In a situation like that, or in a situation like that where my personal backups get deleted but I make a mistake updating a forum and I want to perform, well what they call in WIndows a system restore, hehe, is that possible?
because I've been with some hosts who don't do their own backups, so when you have to restore back to a previous point, your pretty much screwed.
