Hi Keith,
The repository is (are) stored in a DBXML database.  Like all databases,
backing them up when they are in use can leave you with an inconsistent
database state, or possibly even prevent backup entirely because of
locked files.
I _believe_ that if you shut down the MapGuide service before taking
your filesystem-level backup you would be OK, but my experience with
other databases has been that it's typically better to use the provided
database backup/restore functions.

What's the advantage of using the php utilities to back up the
repository as opposed to relying on a file system backup/restore regime?
