Backing Up your system Files

**We do not maintain backups of any of your files. We suggest that you have your host create a cron to backup your files and dBs at least once a week. At the very least the following areas should be backed up:

/ your server > /cms_admin/config/*
/ your server > /cms_admin/smarty/*

And add any other area you cannot live without if you have a disk failure/server crash.

You should also maintain backups locally of your edited style.css and smarty templates. We suggest creating zip archives of them so you alwayts have a rollback position and a timestamp to reference.

Disk failures happen and you need to be prepared unless you are comfortable starting over from scratch. In the event of a system failure we are only able to provide you with our latest default files and templates. Please make a backup plan a priority when you start working on your system.
