Do you have a disaster recovery plan for your website?

Recommended Posts

Earlier this week I read how a major fire at a datacenter belonging to one of the largest European cloud and hosting provider in Europe caused the loss of large amount of data – from everything to popular websites to gaming servers. And that got me thinking. What would you do if the data center which hosts your websites would be destroyed in a huge fire or some other devastating disaster or freak accident?

Do you have a disaster recovery plan?

I do manual backups every week inspite of the host providing auto backups.  This way we don't need to blame anyone rather ourselves 😄

I do manual backups about once a week as well. I have a cPanel script for automated backups to your windows live mail client but stopped using cPanel so I can't use it anymore. But on the plus side I get backups once every hour, once a week, and once a month. I also take them manually every week and a full file backup too once every few months. It's very easy for me to recover if something were to happen. Since I consider myself a professional, recovering from something like this has never been an issue.
