Last week I made a backup using the VPSVille interface. Today I tried to upgrade a few things on my server but I ran into some problems. It was then that I found out that the backup didn't restore.

There was nothing to indicate there were any problems when the backup was made, and no problem report when it failed to restore.

The ability to restore a server from backups is very important to me. It provides a safety net in case my server gets corrupted and I hope this is going to be fixed soon.

My suggestion would be to verify backups, so that users can be confident that they will restore correctly.

I'll echo this feature request.

I've never had to test it, but having some additional feedback would be great!

They are verified by script, but there is no file checksum other than what rsync does. We rely on its exit code.

I think your suggestion is a good one, we'll look into how this can be improved with better feedback.
