- Backups are done daily and weekly
- Daily at 2:10 AM EDT (6:10 AM UTC) the database is dumped to a local file  (i.e., on the ISP's host system).
- Daily at 2:17 AM EDT (6:10 AM UTC) the database dump is copied over a secure link to a remote site.
- Weekly on Saturdays at 2:37 AM EDT (6:37 AM UTC) an dump is made of the entire site, including the latest database dump, to an offsite NFS server  by crontab jobs running on another  server.
- Daily at 2:47 AM EDT (6:47 AM UTC) the create-tree and update-index program is run to make the Family Tree and Help:Index.
- These jobs are run from a remote server  over a secure link and are timed so that the weekly backup will include the latest database dump.
