Does TLF back up my website's files?

The Linux Fix performs file-level backups on all our customer-facing servers free of charge.   If you find you need a file recovered from backup, open a support ticket by emailing support@thelinuxfix.com or submitting one from the Customer Portal.

If you wish to have databases backed up, ensure that you configure a scheduled cron job to dump your database in plain-text format in your directory at least once a day.   Database files are usually not backed up properly while in use, so performing a dump of your database will ensure the data is intact when the backups occur.   TLF Support can help you set up a nightly database dump if you need assistance.
