    This plugin is pretty simple. Though for a PHP4 driven site, currently only FTP archiving 
    is available. It is highly recommended that to get the most out of this plugin &amp; to 
    enable the best data protection; you use an FTP account that is <i>truly</i> remote, meaning 
    a separate domain name (and more importantly, a separate a IP address).<br />

    The files that get generated for each archive are:
                         
    <ol>
        <li>wpTimeMachine-content-files<?php echo $format; ?></li>
        <li>wpTimeMachine-data-files.sql</li>
        <li>wpTimeMachine-htaccess.txt <sup>1</sup></li>
        <li>wpTimeMachine-Instructions.txt <sup>2</sup></li>
        <li>wpTimeMachine-RestorationScript.sh <sup>3</sup></li>
    </ol>

    1: if you're not using .htaccess then no, it won't be created <br />
    2: if you're ever recovering from a catastrophic WordPress failure, this file will help<br />
    3: this file is still under development &amp; should be used with caution<br />
    </em>  
                          
    <div class="hint">
    It's a good idea to store the following two items on your own, (in the same place as the files above):<br/>
    Your copy of WordPress: <a href="<?php echo wp_installer_url.$format;?>"><?php echo wp_installer_url.$format;?></a><br/>
    Or, read about how to use <a href="http://wptimemachine.com/-/wordpress-and-subversion/">Subversion for your WordPress implementation</a>.<br/>
    Your copy of wp-config.php <em>For security purposes this file is not backed up!</em>
    </div>

    <b>Information about Scheduling (and cron):</b>
    <br />

    <ol>
        <li><?php echo wpcontent_url . "/plugins/wp-time-machine/cron.php"; ?></li>
        <li><?php echo wpcontent_dir . "/plugins/wp-time-machine/cron.php"; ?></li>
    </ol> 
         
    For example, you might use curl:<br />
                  
    <code>
    curl "<?php echo wpcontent_url . "/plugins/wp-time-machine/cron.php"; ?>?generate=1"
    </code>
    
       
    <div class="hint">
    
    Note that it is recommended that you set up a separate cron job to delete the temporary archive files:
            
    <code>
    curl "<?php echo wpcontent_url . "/plugins/wp-time-machine/cron.php"; ?>?clean=1"
    </code>
    
    </div>
