    Hi:

    Is anyone aware of a plug-in that will automate daily backups and email them?

    Oooooooh, how I would like that.

    Or -- even better -- is there a way to convince WordPress to do the backups automatically each day and mail them?

    Thanks,
    kwc

    Backups of the whole site or just the database?

    For the database you could use a cron job? Who is your host?

    Hi Podz:

    Database, basically.

    For the current site I am concerned about, the host is NewWay -- a small operation out of Texas. I know I can set a cron job, not sure how to set one for a backup, but I'll look into that.

    Thanks,
    kwc

    P.S. You have some AMAZING tutorials on your site.

    If you have CPanel and the abilty to run cron jobs, try this script. I have been using for over a year with no problems.
