Another feature request!

I was wondering about FTP a backup to a remote server that has akeeba solo / kickstart installed then trigger an install and then test the restored site looking for keywords on specific pages. I know ther would be some difficulties to overcome but that would be so awesome. The truth is people never test their backups until its too late automating the restore and test would make this complete for me!

You can use Akeeba UNiTE to automate backup, download and restoration directly on the target server. You should have download access to it already. After the restoration you can of course use something like a CLI script with wget and grep to make sure that your keywords appear in the expected URLs.
