  • Backing up DB

    I am going to upgrade to Gold and therefore will be backing up my DB. In the new manual there's a fairly detailed explanation on how to do this via SSH/Telnet or phpMyAdmin. However, in the CP I have with my webhost I can perform an automated backup by selecting the DB and clicking backup. I have been doing this regularly. Restoring the DB is (supposedly) just as easy. Is this option good enough or do I need to go with the detailed instructions in the manual (I don't even know what SSH/Telnet or phpMyAdmin is)?

    Thats a fairly even more detailed way to go though SSH, its not a hard process it can just be confusing at first .

    Im not sure how your webhosts backups would be done though your control panel, so i cannot say how reliable if at all they would be. Your best option if its possible is to backup via ssh

      I would ask your host how the backup is performed. If it makes a copy somewhere of all the files/directories that comprise your databases, then that is quite sufficient. If however they use a PHP script to do it, then you really should do it yourself using mysqldump through SSH or Telnet.
