Question: What are you doing for site backups?

April 21, 2009

Recently I read of some web host failures. It got me thinking about what it would take to recover my church’s site. I periodically back up the WordPress db, but that doesn’t save the uploaded content.  So nothing would be preserved in the WP uploads folder or the sermons and other media that’s uploaded via FTP. If my host couldn’t recover the files we’d be very much out of luck and I don’t have local back ups of multiple years of MP3 and uploaded event pictures.

So how would you fair if your web host lost everything?  What is your disaster recovery strategy for your church’s web site?
