If you own or manage an e-commerce store, your website is your biggest asset.

Without it, your business is doomed.

If something would happen to it, you would panic and probably pay thousands of dollars to get it fixed. .

A couple of weeks ago, hackers took over several businesses around the world. They hijacked all the files in the affected computers and were asking for ransom payments to give the files back.

Don’t let it happen to you. Can you imagine the amount of trouble it could bring to you and to your business?

Take control.

Backing up your website regularly must be on top of your to-do tasks.

After doing a bit of research, I found out that there aren’t many sites or blogs explaining how to back up your e-commerce store.

I will start covering some basics, which most people probably know.

All websites are hosted on servers. This means that each image, text, code, everything in your website is stored there in the server. When somebody types the address of a certain page on your website, the files relating to that page, which are stored in the server will load and show the page to the person who typed the address.

Everything related to your website is stored in the server, so you want to have access to it. Make sure your server gives you a cpanel log in and the server’s address information.

An e-commerce store has 2 distinct parts to it. As all websites, e-commerce stores have html pages, and styling codes. Some sites have php pages or other coding formats.

These will all have to be backed up.

But e-commerce stores also have something very important, which must be backed up. The database.

The database is where all the pictures are kept, all the information about each individual item is also kept there as well as the current and past clients details.

Since e-commerce stores have 2 parts to it, as you just read above, there are 2 different processes which must be followed in order to successfully back up a website.

The first step is to back up all the pages and styling sheets. The second step is to back up the databases.

I would suggest doing this at least once a month and storing the back ups on an external hard drive.

Before you start:

* You need to have the name of your server, the port used by the server and your cpanel long in details (username and password)

* You must have access to phpMyAdmin in the control panel

* You must have or install a FTP client, such as Filezilla or Cyberduck.

1 – How to back up files, pages, styling sheets from your website:

Open your FTP client. If you haven’t done so, add your server’s details, your user name and password. The program will load all the folders and files that are on your server.

Then you will add the folder located in your computer where you want the back up to be located.

On Filezilla, all you have to do is to drag any files from the server into the local site (where you want to back it up). It will start coping the files right away.

2- Back up your website’s database

You need to get into the cpanel, phpMyAdmin to be able to perform this task.

Get into phpMyAdmin, choose the database and click on “Export”.

Choose format SQL and it will download the database to your computer.

Make sure you keep a copy of the databases back and the files back up safe somewhere.

If something would ever happen to your website or the server, all you need it to restore it from the back ups.
