    how to do backups?

    how often you do backups? what is the best and trusted method to do backup?

    i have a cpanel here and i am worried about hard drive in the server. should i trust the data stored there? what is the best way to organize backup of mysql + files

    i am a newbie, just started administering dedicated server. Please if anybody can help!

    If it's mission critical data, do offsite backups daily.

    If it's personal data, you can probably get away with something more infrequent. Weekly maybe?

    Personally I sync all my data daily with an offsite backup service.

    Also invest in RAID-1 if you're worried about data loss. That way you have basically 2 levels of backups. A seamless transition drive, and an offsite in the case of total system loss.
