it does refer to off site backups - a plus. The problem with the low tech approach is it relies on logging on and manually carrying out actions. To be effective, one would need to log on every single day or chances are, when the backup is needed, it is a week or more out of date. That was my backup strategy once - download
course backups. When the host
just disappeared I was fortunate my backup was only a couple of days old. Still I had to explain to my students two days of their work had to be redone. Automated daily offsite backups now give me peace of mind.
it is great to see more people installing Moodle but unless they are prepared to step up to the level of knowledge required to look after a LAMP server
, Moodleclou is where they are best suited.
