 +====== Back up your store ======
  
 +  * This is an essential part of the day to day management of any e-commerce site.  You should ensure that you make regular backups of your store to prevent accidental data loss or loss from hackers.
 +
 +  * Luckily osCMax has a very useful SQL backup tool which will create a copy of your online database and allow you to download this to your local machine.
 +
 +  * You will also need to keep a copy of the all the individual .php files held on your server.
 +
 +<note tip>It is strongly advised that you store your backups on your local machine rather than your server. ​ Further more, it never hurts to have another copy on removalable media in case of damage/loss of the local machine.</​note>​
 +===== Backup your database =====
 +
 +  - Login to your admin panel
 +  - Goto **Tools** -> **Database Backup**
 +  - Click **Backup** button
 +  - In the right hand panel make sure the **no compression** radio button is selected.
 +  - Click the tick box marked **Download only**
 +  - A windows dialog box should now popup asking your what to do with the file.
 +  - Click **Save File**
 +
 +<note tip>You may want to move this file to a directory where you intend to keep all of your backups. ​ You will also see in the filename the date and time of the backup which is useful when trying to work out which backup is the latest version - eg. db_storeowner_**yyyymmddhhmmss**</​note>​
 +
 +===== Backup your .php files =====
 +
 +  - Open your favourite FTP program
 +  - Drag and drop the files stored on your server across to your local machine.
 +
 +**Congratulations - you have now backed up your osCmax store**
 +
 +<note tip>We would suggest that you keep a copy of these files on a memory stick or similar in case your local machine is infected with a virus or malware.</​note>​
 +
 +
 +===== Alternate Methodology =====
 +For those of you fortunate enough to use a good version of cPanel on your server.
 +  - (optional) In Admin, create a Database backup but do not download it - store it on the server.
 +  - From cPanel: Backups| Download or Generate a Full Website Backup. Backup Destination;​ Home directory. Enter your email address. Generate backup. You will receive an email when complete.
 +  - In cPanel: File Manager at the Home directory level, you will have a tar.gz file, which you can download.
 +
 +This will contain everything, databases, store files, SSL certificates,​ emails - the lot! Just remember to delete the file from the server once it has download successfully. 7-zip is a useful application to use, for opening this archive, if you are not a UNIX/Linux user.
