Web data­base

Mac Format - - SAVE YOUR FILES -

ro­fes­sional blog­gers might pre­fer to back up the blog data­base man­u­ally (and this will be the only op­tion if your blog plat­form doesn’t have an ex­port op­tion or back-up plugin). The most com­monly used blog­ging data­base is MySQL and your host will have sent you de­tails of how to ac­cess it, of­ten through your host­ing ac­count con­trol panel and of­ten us­ing ph­pMyAd­min. Re­fer back to your wel­come email be­cause it dif­fers from host to host.

Click to ex­port

Log in, then click the name of the data­base used by your blog in the side­bar. In most cases, there will only be one en­try here.

This dis­plays a list of all of the ta­bles of data that un­der­pin your site. You can now click Check All at the bot­tom of the ta­ble, then se­lect Ex­port from the With Se­lected menu. Leave the op­tions on the fol­low­ing page as their de­faults and then click Go to down­load the backup.

To im­port it later, click on the name of the data­base in the side­bar, click the Im­port tab and nav­i­gate to the file you’ve just down­loaded. Click Go to re­in­state its con­tents.

Ex­port­ing the raw con­tents of your blog data­base re­quires that you log into the data­base con­trol panel, which more of­ten than not uses ph­pMyAd­min.

Once you have cre­ated a backup of the data­base con­tents you can eas­ily re­in­state them through the Im­port tab.
