    Hello,
    do you have any idea/manual what is the best way to do image of vps? My vps provider can do this, he backup complete image of vps every day, but if i would like to restore it, i have to pay for it - i can not get image of vps from them, restore can do only hosting provider. So i would like to do my own image of vps and in case i get some problem, restore it. What is your idea, what are you using for this?

    The image type that your VPS provider is taking can only be made from the host system and as you probably don't have access to the host system where this VPS resides on, then you can't take it yourself.

    Solutions:

    a) Use a different VPS hoster that does not charge for restoring a backup ;)
    b) Use a normal Linux backup tool and back up your VPS as if is a normal server.
