Backup and Migrate

When you are getting ready to work on test, you should always update the test database first.

  1. On the live site, go to Content Management -> Backup & Migrate -> Backup.
  2. Daily Backup or Quick Backup to Download is fine.  Click Backup.  The file downloads to your local computer.
  3. On the test site, go to Content Management -> Backup & Migrate -> Restore.
  4. Upload the file you just downloaded and click Restore.  

After restoring a backup, always look at the site to make sure nothing weird happened in the restore.
