Gang, website development/maintenance is definitely not my forte'
I need to get smart on the topic of backing one up, so that it can be shuttered, reworked, redeployed on a different host.
I'm assuming a few things but could be dead wrong so pls correct:
- Depends on several factors including the toolkit/package used for developing, the host [their services], and of course size of the pile
- Do I want to backup ALL the data, or just the code base?
- Or Do I just want to retain the look/feel, media content, id's/credentials?
- Do I want to archive it on my local drive/LAN/SAN/NAS, or move it directly to cloud storage
I bet all the above matters somehow, but help me simplify
