Backup

What is a backup

Most website owners have tried it. They downloaded a new plugin, and their website stops working. Without any way back to a functional state. Backups refers to a copy of your data stored in a secondary location. Done for preservation in the case of a failure or a total catastrophe.

The recovery testing is useful for ensuring capabilities, to reach a point in history without huge file or data loss.

Our method described here is only backing up your file structure. This is useful in the case of a hacker reaching your site and manipulating your files in an unexpected way.

We suggest you use the Wordfence, and you can find our installation guide here.

CDP Backup method

Our underlying infrastructure are GIT, from the Linux Foundation.

The Linux Foundation hold the right for many open source projects.

This gives us options to create continuous backups. We have create a full backup to our external data center. From here we perform the incremental backups of files, created, deleted and/or modified.

When a new backup have finalized, we tag it as a final version which can be used for later restoring process.

Frequency

Our backup process are enabled automatically on all domains and subdomains running on our infrastructure, ensuring your possibilities to roll-back to an older version.

The standard frequency of our backups is once per 24 hours, in the CDP methodology, but can be increase and/or decreased based on changes in usage.

When we are performing your backup, the files is being copied to a separate location before the backup. We do so, to ensure your website doesn’t slow down during the few seconds while we examine which files have changed in relation to the earlier backups.
