I have my own install of Wordpress on a shared host and lately I've been thinking about back ups. The host doesn't support cron jobs, which was my initial thoughts, so I think I have several options: --Keep local copies of all posts, maybe under source control. (I sort of have this already since I share drafts between machines with Dropbox). Of course the problem with this is, I don't have backups of comments --Create a psudeo cron script that dumps the SQL database and emails it to my gmail account. --Something I haven't thought of at all? Just interested in how others do it?
