Instructions - Configuration


Backup - the process of creating a copy of the database, necessary to restore data to its original or new location.

The database backup (backup) module is designed to be able to both save the store database to a .sql file and restore the database from this file in the future. Also, if the file is no longer needed, it can be deleted. In addition, it is possible to download the .sql file with the database directly from the browser. The Solomono team has developed a convenient functionality for working with the backup module.

A backup copy of an online store site is a set of CMS files and a copy of the database.

And in case you “accidentally” delete the site, you just need to re-upload the CMS files to FTP and reinstall the database. If you follow the instructions, it usually takes no more than 10 minutes.

But you need to remember that only the database is backed up, pictures are not backed up. If you delete a category and then restore the backup, all of its pictures will be missing.
