How do I backup my site?
  • It is often suggested before making any major changes to your site to make a backup.

    If you have cPanel you can go to cPanel > backups > download or generate a full website backup

    Note your host will usually have to restore these backups.

    Alternatively, you can manage and administer your own backups with a tool like Akeeba Backup.

    Following the instructions from Akeeba Backup, there are four stages to this process:

    1. Installing Akeeba Backup
    2. Making A Backup
    3. Downloading Archives
    4. Restoring Your Backup
