SUGGESTION #1 If you do any backups of MySQL Instance it is best to setup MySQL Replicaton so that any impose server load or increase disk I/O does not impact your production database is any way. Once you setup MySQL Replication, you can script a mysqldump in different ways (Please see my post on the DBA StackExchange for the variety of techniques), as long ...

Morgan Lewis is a law firm with offices in the UK and they have published information (as of 2012 which is the most recent authoritative publication I can find on the subject) on the ICO's guidance on deleting personal data under the DPA 1998. According to their legal assessment of the guidance the ICO recognized the difficulty in deleting electronic data ...

You can find or change the location of backups in cpanel's Configure Backup Directory section of Backup Configuration interface Home > Backup > Backup Configuration Once you know the location of your file, rather than using a browser, use an FTP client such as filezilla

wp-content and your databases is almost enough. I would also include wp-config.php But take note that sometimes just restoring everything doesn't always work. It should, I can't explain why it doesn't. But sometimes things go wrong. You could also consider one of the backup plugins, but whatever your solution, be sure to get your backups offsite. Don't ...

If you are satisfied with a digital copy, you can 'scrape' the entire site using a tool like HTTrack. It will download the entire website, saving each page locally. That means you could continue browsing the site when off-line, or after Google shuts down Blogger. One thing to note is that images and other page assets will be saved by HTTrack, but say for ...

You could try using a program like HTTrack to perform a site mirror. This gives you a local browsable copy that you can archive.

The FTP server is a Windows Server 2012 machine. It was configured to use ms-dos style directory listings for FTP. ms-dos FTP listing are not compatible with the external backup transport in WHM. To set the global FTP directory output style to UNIX In IIS Manager, right-click the FTP Sites folder, and then click Properties. Click the Home Directory tab. ...

Firstly, if you are running out of disk space you potentially have more problems than legacy backups. As someone who has waited too long to upgrade a server, I urge you to handle it sooner rather than later as if you require migration, it is impossible without spare disk space. Legacy backup is as the name states, an older legacy system. If you have the ...

Your first screenshot answers to your question: cPanel & WHM will deprecate the Legacy Backup system in the near future. We strongly recommend that you upgrade to the new Backup system. As your Backup Configuration shows enabled, you've already done this. It's not only safe but recommended to stop using the Legacy Backup. When removed, it will ...

If you want to create backsups by simply copying files from one folder to another try rsyncbackup which is a perlscript that does easy backups with rsync http://code.google.com/p/rsync-backup/ You can set a cronjob to execute the script

Backups should always be on another server. You can use rsync for your files, and mysqldump your for mysql databases. I run a backup via cron, just using tar, mysqldump and SSHFS. This is a very simple solution, but works for me. Here my code (all in the root crontab). MAILTO=crontab@website.com #Mysql daily 30 4 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30 *...

Since it is an .se site it is possible (although by no means certain) that the National Library of Sweden (Kungliga biblioteket) has archived the page. They have had a fairly robust web archiving program for many years but it will depend very heavily on how long your site was live whether or not they might have captured it. Given the year range in your ...

You can backup your website easily within the panel of your hosting account. After that, you can download the backup and, thanks to a server engine like Apache, you can browse it locally.

You can find the core Joomla 1.5 file structure at: https://github.com/PhilETaylor/Joomla1.5.999 When migrating to a new version of Joomla, I usually create the /new sub-folder and create the new website in here. Once the new website is ready to go live, it is quite simple to move everything in the root folder except /new into /old and then move everything ...

Backup First, make a backup of the entire site, best using Akeeba Backup. Migrate There are some tools out there to (partly) automat the migration process. You might want to have a closer look at two of them: jUpgrade SPUpgrade

The fullsitebackup script looks fine but it might not work on all systems. It's dumping the database and it's compressing the files in a tar file. As with any backup script and system the best way to know if it works is to take the backup, set it up on a fresh machine and see if everything works as usual. It's worth learning some basic shell scripting if ...

Are you sure you don't need key-pair exchanged for this setup ? ssh is TCP. It needs handshaking as the first and key-pair exchange as the second thing to work (cryptographically secure connection is a necessity in ssh, which is a better version of rsh). If you think both the hosts are having these things satisfied, it will work on the contrary you are ...

Looks way over complicated..... Assuming that your using ubuntu from the sudo commands I see in your log then I'd opt to use MySQLDUMP and Simply downloading the site using FTP. sudo mysqldump [options] --all-databases sudo tar cf file.tar /var/www/this/is/the/webhost/path Then download both the tar file and the databases.

I've known several people who lost their entire websites because they didn't back them up on their own and GoDaddy somehow lost the files on their end. With hosts like that, always find a way to back it up yourself. If you have a WordPress website, I'd suggest VaultPress. It's by the same company that makes WordPress and makes sure you have an offsite daily ...

If you don't mind administrators being able to access those changes, the easiest is to revision-delete them: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:RevisionDelete https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=help&modules=revisiondelete If you are looking for a simple solution, you could try dropping entries from the revision table in the database (probably ...

It sounds like the partial backup is compressing something that the full backup is not, to address the issue you need to find out the difference between both files. It's likely the partial backup is actually compressing the the full backup tar.gz and all the other files because 2x67mb = 134mb. To find out the contents of your compressed files simply ...

I think you need to take wp-content, wp-config backup with your database, whenever you are doing a change in your website.


2

The simple answer is yes. You can move a site or sites to another server using a cPanel backup file. The normal way to do this would be from WHM on the receiving server using the "Transfers" function, but you can also do it from the losing server side if that doesn't work. Because I just went through what you're going through with HFW and because the ...

If the files are available from the web, this may be a vulnerability, since it shows part of your configuration to the world. This should not be a serious vulnerability for an otherwise correctly configured server; consider whether the presence of various paths in the file inform someone that those paths exist where they would otherwise not be noticed. This ...

Well, my advice to you is: DON'T DO PARTIAL BACKUP! As web development in wordpress concerned, do backup of everything. Don't just backup one folder and database. There's also wp-content and wp-includes and few files outside thoose folders. wp-content directory has plugins and themes directory that you'd need to backup also.

The solution is to put everything on your website into git. Modify the files locally on your home machine. When you are ready to publish, push them to github and push them to your website over ssh. Here is a tutorial that walks you through cloning your git repository over SSH: https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/siteground-git/clone-git-repository.htm ...

If your database is truely 'corrupted' as you stated, you are unlikely to be able to retrieve your post/page content. In either case, it is located inside your MySQL database inside the wp_posts table and more specifically the post_content column.

You can use most of the popular archiver & compressors such as WinRAR or 7-Zip to "split" the file into 250MB archives. I have used WinRAR to demonstrate the sort of thing you would need to do, it is all very similar and 7-Zip has it even more clearly labeled with "split archive" being an option. If you have access to a shell then you can "split" the ...

First of all, is it a legal and accepted practice in general (assuming we have the original owner's consent)? If you have the author's or copyright holder's consent to copy their works (i.e., web pages), then it is legally acceptable to do so, providing that you don't alter their content without prior approval, retain their copyright notice, and retain the ...
