Backup Tips
« on: June 23, 2006, 10:28:56 AM »
Hi all :)

I would like to back up my website using "fsdump".
Which folder(s) should i backup? just "Home" or the entire directory?

Thanks in advance for your help, Aiko :D

Hello:
In my opinion you should only need to backup your website contents, databases, and e-mail. Other stuff like PHP, Apache and other applications don't need to be backed up as those can be easily reinstalled in case of some issue.

I hope this helps.

I would encourage backing up httpd.conf and any other configuration files that you've changed though.  Re-installs might get Apache working if the drive went bad, but it would be a bare bones re-install without the virtual host stuff you might have added.
