I want to keep a backup of my apache servers vhosts and MySQL databases without having to go into mysqladmin and do it manually and ftp downloading the domain which is what I do now. Is there some sort of software that I can install on my Windows 7 PC that will do this auto like? One where I can press update and it gets the latest versions of all/selected DBs and any new files I have added to the sites.

Aren't you using Plesk?! –  Michael Hampton Aug 28 '12 at 7:10
yes sorry forgot to say using Plesk. Acronis? –  Jizbo Jonez Aug 28 '12 at 7:19
What's wrong with the scheduled backup built in to Plesk, then? –  Michael Hampton Aug 28 '12 at 7:27
Does that backup to my win PC? I though I needed another server or hdd on my server for that. I have a TB worth of files need to backup and havent got the room on my current server. –  Jizbo Jonez Aug 28 '12 at 7:41
You can set it to backup to a remote FTP server, and then set up an FTP server on your computer. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Windows FTP server software but I'm sure you can find some via Google. –  Michael Hampton Aug 28 '12 at 7:42
