  1. not the typical h.a.d. fare but very helpful considering I run several WP blogs… while I haven’t read the article yet the most valuable pluging I’ve ever used is WP-DBManager you can set it to automatically backup your WP database, I have it backup files daily to the a different webserver automatically deleting backup files more than 2 weeks old. Then once a week it emails the latest backup to a gmail account for redundancy.

    best part is, I can manage all of the backup stuff right through the WP admin panel, and I can even set it up to manage the backup of other databases as well..

    I’ve also been hacked once before so I’m a whole lot more cautious than most I suspect.
