Setting up Remote Backups
iDrive is a excellent remote backup service you can use to set up automatic remote backups of your Mango data and configuration. iDrive automatically tracks 10 versions of each file so besides a disaster recovery it can be a great way to roll back your configuration or database if needed.

Get an iDrive business account at www.idrive.com
Connect to the MangoES over SSH

cd /opt/Idrive_ARM sudo nano CONFIGURATION_FILE
edit the following lines:
USERNAME = PASSWORD = EMAILADDRESS = #Set a top level folder name in the Idrive cloud to back up files into BACKUPLOCATION =
ctr x to save and quit
wait for success message. Note that if you logout, you’ll need to supply the password in the CONFIGURATION_FILE again.
Follow the prompts in the script.
You are done.
You can run: sudo ./Backup_Script.pl to start the backup now .
