Well, simple things are quite complicated sometimes (so many limitations on Linux) but finally the backup [site + database] works fine now...

Now the server can bug, crash, explode, whatever... I can completely reinstall FICGS in a few hours from most situations. There should not be more than 59 minutes of moves lost in the process.

- Complete backup every hour on a distant storage space.
- Complete backup every week on another distant storage space.
- Multiple database backup on the server (case of other problems)
- Moves incrementally sent to my email every 12 hours.

So, definitely the recent break shouldn't happen again... I hope so.

I wouldn't say that but "better late than never" for sure :/

Great news, Thib! You only need the last hour's moves sent to your email, right?

That's the essential but much better is the whole thing.
