    Good guide, but I’m afraid most people will forget to do backups at regular intervals. In my opinion, it’s much better to setup backups to run automatically at specific intervals.

    Also, you can use an ftp utility i.e. NcFTPGet, to automatically download and even delete this backup afterwards.
