    Is there a way to set restore script to "automatically restore" the DB on a daily basis?

    Cheers!

    Why would you want that?

    Updating local site to live site. Best way to save server resources, having as less as possible plugins installed on live site /not to mention the security advantage...

    I process posts locally with several heavy plugins, and then posts table is sent to FTP on a daily basis (this works fine so far), now I want to automate the restore process of posts table on a hourly/daily basis.

    This is what Xcloner should be about :)

    It would also be very useful if the script is password protected.

    Cheers!

    Wow, that's genius.

    I like this idea a ton as using WordPress locally versus over the internet is like night and day speed difference. I'm wondering where I might use that idea.

    Comments would be the main concern I suppose? I have a feeling using a third party comment system might get around that?

    I believe that if you only update the table it should leave the comments attached to posts.
    But yes, it should be considered, and I also believe it can be done with simple comments feed import from live to local before the local to live process... This could be done more frequently since only local side would use resources...

    However, for all of us not using the comments, this would be very helpful...

    Cheers!

    for example this could be modified to work between 2 wordpress installations... http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lj-comments-import/
