    Is it possible to implement an automatic backup feature?

    I was thinking it could be implemented in one of two ways.

    1) The method I prefer, I set a frequency with which aMember backups and e-mails me the backup.

    2) The backup is performed by uploading the backup to an FTP server.

    It would be great to have the piece of mind associated with automated backups.

    We would prefer to don't implement it inside of aMember.

    You can use any backup script that can backup a MySQL database, there are no other requirements.

    I believe your hosting should worry about backups.
