A Question of Backups

I am migrating over to a new dedicated server which has daily back-ups as part of the monthly plan.

With that in mind, is there any need to do any regular Magento backups, and if so, which one(s)?

If possible you should run daily backup image folders and database of your Magento 2 store.

I wouldn't fully rely on your hosting provider's backup as they may not be stored offsite and they usually do not guarantee the integrity of the backups. 

 

You should consider taking your own backups as well and store it offsite.

Thanks James,

Backups of my own take a very long time and even much longer to download!

What backup option would you do?

Re: A Question of Backups

You can write a script to take a backup and send it elsewhere like a Cloud storage provider or FTP backup space. 

 

Alternatively, there are also third-party solutions like CodeGuard and a few others that can grab the backup from your server.
