Backup Blog

I have decided to backup this blog. First time. So following instructions from wordpress.

  • 1- Backup Database:
  • 2- Backup webserver files
root@vps:/var/www# ls
html wordpress
root@vps:/var/www# cd ..
root@vps:/var# tar zcvf web-backup.tgz www
  • 3- Transfer the tgz and the sql file to a folder in my laptop that is backed-up to external hard drive.
