On a Ubuntu VPS, if my understanding is correct, all the relevant information for wordpress sites (multiple) reside in directory
Thus, as a sane backup practice, a compressed archive of each directory, subsequently
scp'ed to another location would allow recovery by:
- launching a new VPS instance
- configuring the DNS mapping, web server, installing WP et al, as per a fresh installation
- restoring the directory of the wp_app
Is there any gap or pitfall in this approach?
note: it is a goal to avoid additional plug-ins that would cover some of these functions
