backup plug-in or manual in mySQL? (1 post)

    I had the scare of my life today when I thought my web host went MIA and I couldn't even get to my databases to transfer info if I wanted to.

    I see there is a wordpress plugin for backing up databases but permissions for wp-content has to be 777 for it to work and I understand that is a big no-no...especially since one of my blogs was hacked yesterday.

    I know my host has the option through mySQL but I think it is only manual...not an automatic, frequent backup.

    Any thoughts on this or recommendations? I just want to be sure I'm doing the best thing.

    Thanks in advance.
