    Default VPS Backups?

    Hi i want to purchase your VPS 200, however im wondering is there backups made of the VPS accounts? if so how frequently are they done?

    The reason i ask is that i see a few angry people on other sites complaining that they lost backups from spry.


    Thanks for your time and hope to be a customer soon.

    Tony

    Tony,

    Thanks for your interest in Spry Hosting. Unfortunately, Spry did experience some difficulty with our previous backup system, mainly in September of last year. Spry is a growing hosting provider and the old backup system was quickly replaced with a new system which is more scalable and reliable.

    All Spry VPS plans feature incremental nightly backups. Instead of fully restoring accounts, most of the time Spry will re-install the OS while placing all of the backup content in /old. This allows for copying config files and content directly into a fresh OS install.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Ali,

    I have attempted to answer your questions below:

    Spry's backups are stored on a dedicated backup server that is not accessible by Spry's customers. You may create your own backups inside your VPS if you wish.

    Spry's backups consist of the entire filesystem, including the operating system.

    Spry's support technicians typically make the backup available as /old inside your VPS. You could then copy or download the content in any way you prefer.
