Backup your site files - best way???


Recommended Posts



What is the bast way to backup your OSC site files. I know that the backup function in admin just backsup your database, so what I do to backup my site is (within my FTP program) I just download all my store files to my hard drive.


But is there a better (faster and maybe more reliable) way to do this?

A way to do backups would be to script the backup, ,


I dont have to do this as I have a quantum superloader for my server farm.


But if you have access to a shell acount you could create a script that would copy all the files to a archive folder. I would do this for you're database as well , MYSQL can be backed up while the database is up.
