Dumb Question #187

How should I go about 'backing up' my blog?

I know that Pixy might/probably does daily/hourly back ups, but I'm thinking that I should be a responsible blogger and do it myself.

Anyone care to leave a step-by-step method for this? And here's another stupid question: when I back it up, I'll be backing it up to a spot on my notebook i.e. a local hard drive, right?

Waiting and twidling my thumbs....

When you log in to MT, click on the Import/Export tab on the left. Scroll down and click on export entries. Then copy what is there to a notepad file. This backs up all of your content.

In CPanel, click on the backup icon. Click on Generate/Download a Full Backup. This backs up all of the other stuff.

Yep. It's pretty easy, and it's a smart thing to do in case I get hit by a bus.

Which reminds me, I need to give the details of the new servers to my emergency backup in-case-of-bus peeps.
