Auto-backup of WP site in ready 4 new server? (2 posts)

    Hi all,
    just wondering if you have a combined export/backup tool that allows not only all content to be backed up, but the theme also? (Or do people just store the original theme they worked on in a different folder)?

    Basically I'm dealing with some fairly non-technical net users and we need an easy backup in case my server company goes bankrupt, I die, or whatever... and they have to setup the site from scratch again on another server!

    So ideally my other activist friends would receive an email once a week with some file that they could use to upload to a new installation of the site on another server. The reason I keep stressing another server is that I've used CMS's before with a backup I thought was safe, and found that it only backed up to the same site with the same server information, if that makes sense.

    OK, question above was too large. I'll try this.

    What plugins do you prefer for backup?

    WP-DBManager? Other? Why? How easy do they make it to move to another server?

    Cheers in advance.
