    I'm interested in using ISPConfig.
    Backup is an important feature for me. I already took a look at the demo, but I'm missing some features.
    So what I would like to do is, setup a fully automatically backup service which backups basically everything, MySQL databases, web files and the emails.
    The backup should be put via ftp to an external server.
    Can this somehow be achieved by ISPConfig?

    The current version creates backup for websites and databases. The upcoming release will also create backups for mailboxes (there is already a backport for mailbackups). You can either push/pull your backups to an external server or mount the server during the backup to your backup-dir

    I use a bash script to backup my stuff. I also run additional services on the server and not just ispc...
    Basically my script does:
    1. dump of sql dbs
    2. also make binary copies of mysql dbs (stopping mysql, copying, restarting)
    3. rsync all files (except a few folders) to backup destination through ssh
    4. make hardlink snapshot copy on backup location
