How Do I Backup my Website?

The following article refers to the Plesk Backup Manager which is freely available in your control panel. See here for Acronis backup guides.
1. Once you’re logged into your account, go to ‘Webhosting Plesk’ to view your websites that have hosting
2. Click into the hosting summary, by click on the panel for the website.
3. At the bottom, under ‘Webspace (domain)’ panel, click on the drop-down for ‘Back Up Websites’
4. Click on the ‘Back Up’ button at the top to begin a backup. If no backups exist currently, you will automatically be taken into this screen.
5. Here you can choose the backup parameters you wish, ideally for your first back up; you will want to do a full backup to ensure all data is collected, then periodic incremental backups from there on out.
6. Once you’ve set the settings to what you want, click ok and the backup process will begin. The backup process may take several minutes but once done you’ll be taken back to the backup manager page where you can view your latest back up.
