PM sent, also - I already use Dropbox's limited Linux backup client for some very important data, that resides in a TrueCrypt volume for emergencies. I plan to use something akin to Amazon Simple Storage System (Amazon S3) or a NAS provided by my DC to back up in the future.Lost Signal, please PM me the correct link to log into my account. I'm getting an error but I can't say for sure I didn't scramble the link.
Last I understood I do need each volunteering host to install DropBox because it's an executable. Its purpose is less for backups, because I do a pretty good job of that, but more for speed-loading pages. So Seraphim, try installing it and then let's work through the blips. I'd like to try it this weekend.Edit: found where you described it.
Yes, please do set that up if you feel you need it. I also find the Virtualmin file manager to be very frustrating, but usually it's not an issue for me because I SFTP everything anyway.
Let me know if you need anything configured on my end for it.
Yes, I am interested in more of the live-synch aspect of Dropbox, so you'd have to install it as a typical executing program. Though to my knowledge once it finishes a synch it sits there and does nothing exciting aka little server drain.....
Are you asking if we would put a backup of your site on DropBox...
The issue with that is that if you upload something to Dropbox, there's no Linux client that you can use to access your files. So someone with server level access would have to put the files in your account, from the dropbox drive.Yes, I am interested in more of the live-synch aspect of Dropbox, so you'd have to install it as a typical executing program.

Per the other note, I do a really good job on backups - this is more for rollout.
I'd like to try it this weekend if possible and I expect it would take a couple tries to get right. Esp. see Seraphim chimed in too, that starts to give you the idea - rollout of "fresh pages".
