How to backup your website with Premium Hosting

Backing up your website on a regular basis is a good habit to get into to ensure you can restore your hard work should something go wrong. The Affilorama Hosting control panel has an easy backup tool you can use to create backup copies of your website files and databases to download to your computer.

Please note that if your website is MySQL-based, such as a Wordpress site, you have to backup your MySQL database using a separate MySQL backup tool.

How to create a backup copy of your files and databases

  1. Login to your Affilorama Hosting control panel by clicking on the "Access” button on the Affilorama Premium Hosting page.
  2. Click on the Backup / Restore link on the “Files” section.
  3. Click on the “Create Full Backup” button to compress all your website files into a single zip file. You will then see a message indicating the backup file is being generated. This process will take a few minutes depending on the total size of the files. Website files with a total size of 100 MB or higher, will take about 10 minutes or more to be compressed on the server.
  4. After the backup file is created, you will see an option to download the generated zip file. Click on the “Download” button to save this file to your computer.
  5. Select the folder to which you want the zip file to be saved and then press “OK” to start the download.

 

To download your MySQL databases:

  1. Logon to your Affilorama Hosting control panel by clicking on the “Access” button on the Affilorama Premium Hosting page.
  2. Click on the MySQL databases link on the Web Tools section.
  3. Scroll down to the “Manage MySQL databases” section to see the list of your existing databases.
  4. Click the "Now" button under the Backup column to initiate the backup process.
  5. A download prompt will pop up after the SQL file is created. Click the "Save" button to save the SQL file to your computer.
