Am I All Backed Up Now?

Post By:user_49744 | Reply

Ok, probably a stupid question but if my CPanel has a home directory backup and a MySQL Database Backup and of course I save those files to my PC, does that mean my entire Zen Cart is backed up?

Only for the "Full Site Backup" option...

Not the home directory and mysql backups as these function as intended

actually if you read the small print it says that you cant restore the files that only root can do this

Correct me if I am mistaken:

cPanel has the facility for:
Restore a Home Directory Backup and Restore a MySQL Database and this will restore the files or DB back to what it was when the backup was made in the event there is an issue or corrupt file/DB without having to unzip and manually upload.

In a busy store the DB should be backed up daily - the store files - anytime you make alterations to them

that means the entire site is backed up, yes,
please note that you cant use the files that you downloaded to restore a backup yourself, you would need to unzip them and upload the files manually
