View Full Version : Server Question

12-07-2005, 05:41 PM
Hello All

I have been thinking that I should be backing up a few of my database a bit more often just in case my hostís mysql server goes down & I loss data.

Now I am thinking instead of me manually backing up the database every few months or so that I should fine a backup script that I can run with a cron job & upload the database backups to my local computer automate via FTP

The computer that will be running the FTP server is running win xp pro with SP 2 & the server software I will be using will be either GuildFTPd or FileZilla_Server I have not made my mind up yet on what one I will use.

Now with opening up port 21 is there any thing else I need to know?

Yes I will be using a firewall it will be Zone alarms & I will only be opening up port 21 to one ip address ( my web host ip address, Hopefully Zone alarms can do that & I will be blocking every thing else) & yes I know xtra may not like me doing this but stuff them!

Any Advise/ feedback/ questions is welcome :)
