    How to Image a VPS?

    Is there a good way to image a VPS? I already have rsync running backups of critical files off-site, but I'm wondering if there's a reliable way to make what amounts to a full-blown image of the VPS?

    Thanks.

    What VPS technology are you running?

    But if you're running linux, then you could just copy the root filesystem. This is the easy but im sure it's not the best way to image a VPS :p
