I have a client who is trying to automate his backup process for his clients, but can't use either the desktop Remote client, or the php scripts that run via cron on the webserver. Reasons for both are long to explain.
My initial idea was to replicate the functionality of the desktop Remote app on a separate "backup" server. On this server would be a PHP-based XMLRPC client that initiates the backups on the various web servers out there, then pulls the backup files to itself.
Has anyone done this already, or are there plans in the Joomlapack dev world to offer this?
Any thoughts on the subject would be great.
