How to Back Up Your Site

  1. Log in to your dashboard then go to  Settings > Advanced Settings >> Backup/Restore.
  2. When Backups are available, they will be listed here. You can simply modify your desired settings & click Create Backup.


Note: Always do the Database separately, as doing this with all the other files will cause a timeout when trying to restore due to the size of what is being restored.

Typically you will want to select Core Application Files and Theme Files for the first one, after that you will do another back up for Images, Cache Files, Digital Product Files, then you can back up the Database. Doing these backups individually ensures the information is being backed up correctly.
