This site contains some useful informations, links, and discussions. It is possible to get an offline archive? Considering it is mostly text, the file should be small enough to download. Is it also mirrored? It would be a great loss if it went down by some accidents or hacking.

Yes, we download a back-up version of the entire database / site about once per month. Thanks for the reminder. :)

One of the reasons e-sangha never got back online was because backups were not done and they had their own dedicated server, which saves money, but then there is no hosting company to get assistance from and the data back. We will always use the services of a web hoster, so should be able to always get the data back no matter what happens.

Do you have a link where a user can download the whole website to read offline? Thanks.

Are the backups tested? I mean that a backup is restored to a test server to see if it still works. This way you can prevent unpleasant surprises when you actually need the backup. This is a standard practice in the IT business.

Btw: test server means some computer that runs the same database, webserver and forum software (phpBB in this case). It can be just a pc that is usually used for other things, so it doesn't have to cost a thing.
