Database backup

When you've got a website with database, for instance, a website that uses WordPress, Joomla! or any other CMS, it's important to back-up your database regularly. In case you make a mistake, or a hacker actually manages to hack your website, you'll have something to fall back on.

How often do you have to make a backup

The frequency with which you have back up your database, depends on how often the website changes. For example, if you have a webshop and have orders come in daily, that would mean it'd be wise to issue a backup daily. The less often something changes on your website within a certain period of time, the less often you have to have a backup made.

Back up your website yourself or outsource it

You can easily do a backup yourself if you have access to your database. However, you'll have to remember to do this regularly and do proper version control by giving the backup a name that clearly indicates when the backup was made.

Restoring a backup isn't without risk. It's possible new tables have been added to your database that weren't saved to your last backup. The same applies to fields in your database.
Therefore, whenever your database or website gets an update, it's wise to back up your database.

Does all of this seem like a hassle to you or do you simply not have the time to export your database daily: outsource backing up your database.

In addition, developers will likely spot changes to your website and database faster, and will run a backup whenever necessary.

Storage

When you've made backups or had backups made, it's important not to leave them lying around. Your database could, for instance, potentially contain personal details of your customers. Be sure to get an external hard drive or CD, and write down which backup is stored on it. Then place the disc containing your backup in a location you'll remember in time of need. Preferably behind a lock. You can also consider protecting the backup file with a password.

If you regularly back up your database, you'll have a lot of duplicate backup data after a while. It's wise to remove the oldest backups.
