[owncloud-devel] Making Owncloud backups safely

Hi all. The Owncloud admin manual recommends that nightly backups (with 
service interruption) can be achieved by shutting down apache before copying 
the files and dumping the database. 

Can I take this to mean that this is a safe way of backing up Owncloud? My 
concern was that I wasn't sure how to stop (or wait to finish) any sync or 
other operations that were currently happening. Would shutting down apache 
achieve this? I'm not too worried if a sync is interrupted and needs to be 
restarted later. Downtime is not an issue for me. I just want to avoid data 
corruption. Perhaps I don't even need to be concerned about the above?
