Hi I would like to setup automatic monthly backups of the files and databases on my VPS, I would like the files to be backed up to another server via FTP and to my home computer with Win 7. I have webmin installed as well on my VPS, if that helps in facilitating setting up the backup. What are my options? Thanks

You can try using the script from http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-to-backup-mysql-databases-web-server-files-to-a-ftp-server-automatically.html if your setup is not complex.
Otherwise you can try using Duplicity which should be able to send the backed up data to your home machine via FTP.
Personally because I back up to a Linux box, I'm using rsnapshot on the client end with a rsync (post-backup script) to transfer the data.
