Giveaway: Back Up Your Site With BackupSF
Comment below to win a BackupSF license worth $25.00 courtesy of EasySector!
BackupSF is a Windows program for backing up web site files and MySQL databases.
Before backing up a site enter the site login details using the Add Project button. Adding a project means filling in ftp details, if needed including or excluding web site folders from the back up, and then filling in database details. It is possible to skip one of file or database back up and only do the other. If database back up is chosen BackupSF will need to upload its php script (and .htaccess file, both included in the download) to the BackupSF_scripts folder which it will create on the host server.
After details are entered a back up schedule – daily, weekly or monthly – can be set up. Finally one can change the default local back up folder.
The program’s limitation is that while it does the backing up the restoring is left to the user – via ftp and phpMyAdmin for example.
BackupSF runs on Windows XP and newer. PHP support is required on the host server. It is available in three versions and the standard version available for this giveaway has a 2 site and 2 MySQL limit.
