How to back up a website

Creating a backup of your website files is a manual process and is the responsibility of the individual webauthor.

The process involves manually copy / pasting your Local Site Folder to another location.

How often you make backups of the site will be up to you.

When you do make a backup, remember to:

  • Download ('Get') the full site from the Web Server before copy / pasting the folder
  • Put a date on the copied folder so that you know when the backup is from
