I'm using the Turnkey Linux Wordpress install in my classroom to allow my students to do all of their writing projects, but every time we have a power outage for the school (or the administrators unplug all of the servers to avoid lighting damage) I lose posts that my students have worked on.
Solutions I've tried:
Using WP plugins that can automate the backup but the problem here is that I can't actaully automate the process because the WP installation won't send the email with the backup file and you can't automate a backup locally.
I've looked for a way to automate the backup of my virtual box (taking a snapshot of the image on a schedule) but haven't found one.
I have the Wordpress Virtual Machine hosted on Windows Server 2003.
Any ideas on how to fix the email settings or how to automate the snapshot feature?
Sorry if this issue has already been addressed; I did google it and search the forums here.
