How to Backup Magento 2 Store

Backup Magento 2 Store

Taking a backup of Magento 2 is quite easy. You need couple of very simple steps to take the whole site backup.

What you need to do is –

  • Make a zip file of the whole site. (Go to admin panel > System > backups)
  • Take a database backup from admin panel or directly from the main server (Go to server and find where the database is kept, access phpmyadmin)

Download both of them and save it anywhere safe. This is the backup of your whole site.

If your database is very big we recommend take backup from terminal such as SSH Clients like Putty. You can google search how to take backup on SSH and learn how to do it, it is also quite easy.
