Backup and Restore



Your SocialEngine community isn’t really safe unless you have a solid backup plan. Unfortunately, many things could go wrong from hackers, server crashes, malware, user errors, accidentally deleted files, to bad commands, etc. Keeping that in mind, we developed the Backup And Restore plugin to help our customers feel more peaceful when knowing their sites and content are totally safe.

Backup And Restore is a complete backup solution for SocialEngine site with automatic scheduling support. It allows you to easily create different backup schedules (every 4 hours, every 8 hours, every 12 hours, daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly) for your database and files; and store them in Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, My SQL Database, SFTP Server, and even email them to configured email addresses

Last but not least, restoring a SocialEngine community from backup is also very simple – just click a button and begin restoring any backup in only a few minutes. You can restore to your current site, or to alternate test sites.
