    * R1soft or Rsync ? I m confused.Need Help

    I run a vbulletin forum on a dedicated box at theplanet.Presently i use mysqldump daily to backup my db and download a copy of the db to my home pc.I also take a weekly home directory backup through the backup option in cpanel and keep a copy in my home pc.its a small forum, approx 30 k threads and 400 k posts.


    i was looking at the other hosting offers forum here and came across providers offering rsync and r1soft backups.

    which one of the two would work best for vbulletin ? do both the softwares backup all the files on my hard drive including my mysql db ? i did check the r1soft website and they have a really fancy write up about their cdp 2.0 for linux,while the rsync website is just a simple page.is this r1soft thing that hot ?

    does anyone use any of the above mentioned tools on their vb forums ? if so,please post your experience with the tools.also anyone use webbycart or jonesolutions ?

    thanks and have a nice weekend

    r1soft is that hot. It will backup everything, the MySQL databases(You have to buy the addon usually), the forum files(Attachments, etc), and everything else on your server. It's expensive, but with the minimal size of a vbulletin forum it shouldn't cost you more than a few dollars a month. Have a look @ JaguarPC, they have dirt cheap r1soft backup solutions.

    If you are running just a Vbulletin forum, then I would suggest Rsync. R1Soft CDP is an excellent solution if you have to backup a lot of things.

    JaguarPC has servers with R1soft on it, and you can purchase space(Like 10gb of it) and you'll get a client that you install on your server and it backup's to there.

    Jag also sells Licenses, they're like $150 or $180 a month, so it's not worth it unless you backup like 500gb~1tb of data.

    R1Soft = awesome but there is a price tag that comes with it.
    rsync = good, free but not as good as r1soft.

    Basically depends on how important that data is, and your budget.

    It's not that expensive if your only backing up 15~25gb.

    http://www.jaguarpc.com/services/backups.php

    10gb $7.50
    25gb $15.00
    50gb $25.00

    It's $13 for the mysql addon though, you might want to inquire with sales if they can cut you a deal.

    You don't have to be a Jag customer to get that pricing, the catch is you have to pay $13 for the MySQL addon(Which might be included in the $50 with The Planet) and $2.50 for the CDP addon.

    We used to use rsync and then changed over to R1Soft's CDP solution. There is nothing wrong with rsync, the main reason for the change over was a more streamlined disaster recovery in the event it is needed.
