When disaster strikes, your website becomes a priority. Whether you’re building a new site or looking to recover from an outage, here are 11 tips to help you out when a disaster occurs.
-Back up everything. Cloud is good, but you should also have a local backup of your website files and database on external hard drives or an offsite server for worst-case scenarios.
-Test backups! When disaster strikes, there’s no time to test whether the backups are working properly.
– Make sure they work before it happens so that you know how to recover when something goes wrong.
-Keep one eye on what’s happening in the social media sphere – if people start talking about “the site” (instead of just their Facebook feed), then this could be a sign that your site has been hacked or compromised.
