Hi Omar,

This sounds nice.  You might also find some good info on http:// 
cvs.drupal.org/viewcvs/drupal/contributions/modules/fbu/ which is a  
file backup module by Robert Douglass.  We were going to do some  
things w/ FBU back in March but did not get around to it.  It has  
some pear package dependencies.  (side note - then again i think  
there's a module to let you add pear package support to drupal w/o  
needing to install on server itself.)

I think the idea of FBU is for backing up the /files/ directory which  
has the potential for lots of new data on daily basis.

What if dbbackup could write to something in /files/dbbackup/ (and  
maybe rotate out every week or X number days so you can keep a week's  
worth of dbbackups locally, and then you have the module let you  
backup /files/ and send it off to email/ftp/etc.?

I think this can be pretty valuable, esp. for where you don't have  
backup routines setup server-wide (like w/ shared hosting) as well as  
you could do one-click on-demand button to backup your entire site,  
if you're about to try/test something  :)

sounds very handy.
