I'm wondering what every one is doing for a backup system of their Websites? What are your favourite tools and how do you manage them? What is the backup frequency and do you have a specific program?
I like this idea. But then how would you know which changes you made for any given day? Which backup to select when you do a restore?strokerace said:Basically what I do is, when I edit any files on the server, I download them into a new folder so it doesn't change the original ones I first uploaded. Then if I happen to make any changes to the database, I export the sql into the new folder.
All my sites are testing and development sites. So if you have a web forum, or other type of site where your data can change daily, then I would suggest doing a daily back up using the tools in the cpanel. That way, it will give you a date stamp. In case of a failure, you will have a backup, minus the data that may have been there on the day of the failure.
