Thanks to You, donmarvin and to all previous contributors!
I set up a cron job in my cpanel for the first time - it was much easier than I expected. I had always avoided the crontab, thinking it was too complicated.
Put this in the cron's "command to run":
replacing [MYPATH] with yours.
The cron job runs JoomlaCloner every night, which creates a backup file and ftp's the file to another server.
So now I can have all the Joomla sites I manage run a daily backup and transfer it off the live server to another server that's used for storing backups.
You can set it to delete backups that are older than xx days.
The advanced search does not give you the option of disabling (not showing) certain search fields, such as "country" or "district". If you're running a local real estate site, you don't want the county field showing in the search options.
Using parameters I was able to write one include file for all 16 calls to the code!
