New in Freedom CMS: Site Backup ToolMonday, October 29, 2012
The Site Backup Tool is another new feature in version 8.2. The backups it creates are like snapshots of your entire website. If you need to, you can restore your site to an earlier state with just a couple of clicks. However, there's a lot more you can do with this tool as well:
Migrate sites - This tool also lets you easily migrate a complete site from one server to another. So for example, if you need to migrate your site to a different server (such as to the shiny new AccriCloud) you can order a new site, create a backup on the old site, and do a quick export/import. It couldn't be easier.
Copy sites - You also may want to copy a website. Maybe you've got a new client who likes the design of one of your existing sites. You can copy the existing site to the new website as a starting point, then make changes from there. It's way faster than starting from scratch.
Create prototypes - Here's another interesting idea: If one of your clients is interested in a new site design, you can copy the site to a "prototype server," demo the changes to them on that server, and once the new design is approved, you can copy it back over, overwriting the old site.
This feature is available in the Tools module of the Green Interface. Take a look at the video below for a quick overview of the features:
