Title: Mirror Site for the forum

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-06-16 15:20:45


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! As the Forum grows more, my plan is to gradually put most of the content in the VaniBase into the forum along with the fresh spiritual content being added daily so that it will be easy to edit anytime, to add commentaries, and it will promote more interactivity as one can ask a question on any thread or post at any time. it is also easy searchable and always available as anyone can search in any particular forum or subforum at any time.


So if some devotee(s) who have a little bit of knowledge about maintaining web sites and the php forum software and if they can register a new domain name and have some small cpanel linux hosting of their own, then I can provide with the forum software, database and other settings file so that a mirror (test) site of this forum can be maintained which can be used a backup for this site. This backup site will need only the hosting space and will not require much bandwidth as it is just a backup alternative. The database of that backup site can be updated every month or so with the new updated database of the main forum. This is one solution which I can think of. Any feedback or suggestions or input or alternative solutions are welcome in this matter.

'Could you just back up the database, and store it offline to be restored if necessary later. If its mysql then using phpmyadmin you can apt-get install it. It will give you a web interface which allows you to export your databases and its data. Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!'

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

Not sure if you have arranged for backups yet in anyway, but thought I would mention this anyway as I came across it today and it looks appropriate. Would this program help at all. It can totally automate the backup process, be set to run on schedule etc.


If so I can get it at a discount
