MS SQL Automated Backup

Discussion in 'Pre-sales questions' started by eric84, Apr 23, 2010.

  1. Is there anyway I can automate the backup of my SQL Database. I would like to host with you but it would be nice to be able to schedule a weekly backup of some type? I am happy to do this over ftp rather than using the control panel if this is possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm afraid not. Bear in mind that our SQL 2008 Server is a stand alone server separated from the web server. To make sure our SQL Server and your database remain secure will require you to initiate the backup manually from within the control panel. Then from there it will place the backup (.bak) file within your root and you will need to use FTP to download it to your computer.
  3. Okay, thanks for the reply. I'll have to think about how I want to do this.
