Let me explain the backup procedures.
1) Admins can download a backup of their board and store it on their hard drive. They can re-upload the backup file at any time to restore the board.
2) Admins can backup their board at the click of a button "Server-Side Backups", and restore it again at another click. This one's stored here on the server, so they don't have to download anything.
3) We do daily, weekly, and monthly backups here on the server.
4) We also do daily, weekly, and monthly backups which are sent to a completely different server, in the event that our hard drive blows up or something. Which it won't, but you can never be too careful.
5) Users can download a backup of their personal settings, sigs etc, and re-upload it at any time to restore it.
Board backups include pretty much everything - forums, posts, settings, templates, logs... [Edited By BbBoy at 08:16:21 Wed Mar 20 2002]
