Another way to do remote backups is to create a script that runs /scripts/pkgacct $1 where $1 is the accout you want backed up. This will create a tar of the entire site that can be placed into the /home directory and restored from WHM ROOT. It packages up everything you need to do a complete restore. In the script have it FTP the file to another remote location. Then you just cron the script that does this backup and FTP. That way you do not need to have any passwords or user ID's sitting in files on the server that in text format.
