Make regular backups of your site.

  • Back up both the database and the files on the web server. Test your backups to ensure you are doing it right.
  • Document and test your backup and restore procedure before you need it.
  • Back up on a regular weekly or daily scehdule, before installing modules or upgrading, and after major activity or changes on the site.
  • Remember to clean out and delete old backups from the server periodically.
