Backup and Migrate

This module allows you to save your database en restore it if neccesary. For a full Backup of the site you need more than backup and migrate. You need to backup your folders and files too, using FTP. Be ware of that!

As is speek of Backup and Migrate i mean the database, not the files. Even if they speek of a full backup..it is only one of the dabase... not the files..

The easy way is to backup local on your computer saving a download. The most secure way...

You heve to make the folder first and set the rights. Nobody can access these files from the web!. test it!. From Drupal 8 on the folder can not be a Drupal folder. It can not be inside a Drupal folder! I made one in the root of my server folder.

In your settings.php you need to specify the private map. If not writable, you have to set the rights op the file temporary writable. Don't forget to reset the rights to 400.
