How to create a backup of CMS Made Simple?

Every website need a sufficient amount of security to be provided. One of the ways you can make sure that even if there is any kind of security breach, your website could be restored and your data – kept safe, is to perform a backup of your online project.

CMS Made Simple does not have its own method of creating a backup from the script itself, but you can easily make one yourself, by following the couple of instructions we are going to outline in this part of the tutorial.

First of all, you need to download all of the files, contained in the script’s installation folder to your local machine via FTP. If you have not done this procedure before and you are not sure exactly how to perform it, you can find detailed instructions of how to do so in this article.

The only other thing you need to go through then, is to export the database of your CMS Made Simple application via phpMyAdmin. Again, if you are struggling to do that – check out this article for step-by-step tutorial of the process.
