I am doing what everyone preaches right now, as we speak.. I am trying to follow the rules exactly because i will be doing my biggest integration of a contribution that I have ever done, and I want to make sure i take EVERY precaution BEFORE I start.

 

I am working on the ARTICLE MANAGER contribution, and while it may not seem huge to you, it is to me.

 

Anyways, I know that i can make a backup from the oscommerce admin, but i believe that is not a full backup, correct? Just a backup of the databases and such?

 

So i opened dreamweaver and downloaded all the files form the internet so the local view and remote view are now the same.. If i just save that to a local file on my cpu and date it, i should be fully backed up correct?? This way, if anything gets screwy, i can just refresh from the locally saved copy by uploaded and replacing the changed files with the older files correct??? Or is the osc admin way the right way to do it.

 

I have never backed up a website that has so much integrated into it.

 

THANKS

 

PS if anyone is around and bored, shoot me a PM if you are willing to chat with me throughout this process, i admit i am a tad nervous.

A great place for newbies to start

Hey there. Use the tools in the admin section to backup your databases as well as your method mentiond above. You need both things backed up. Your Database AND your files!
