Imagine, if you will, that you have decided to make some big changes to your website. You go make the changes and something goes wrong. You’re left with a bit of a mess. Worst nightmare! However, you can run a backup before you make changes. Our software has a very simple way to back up your content!
Since the Bizzy Boutique online store builder software is database driven, it is important to run periodic backups of your database. You can generate a full backup to do this, but you may decide it is unnecessary to backup everything. So, here is how to backup just your databases. For information on how to run a full backup, please see our knowledgebase article on the topic or view our full website backup video tutorial.
To backup the database of your online store builder please do the following:
Login to your store admin and find the the “Backup” link under the “Administration” heading.
Click on the “Backup Database” button.
Follow the directions to save the backup file to your computer.
Once you have a backup, if you ever inadvertently lose your data, then you can restore the database easily and quickly.
To restore a database, please do the following:
Login to your cPanel and click on the Backups icon.
Click the Browse button next to the option which says Restore a MySQL Database.
Select the .sql.gz file which you want restored.
Click the Open button and click the Upload button.
As always, if you have any questions about running backups or anything else, please feel free to open a ticket!
Wishing you all the best and a ton of success,
