    WordCamp Denmark 2015Speaker: Linda Kristiansen

    October 21, 2015 — Mange får udarbejdet en hjemmeside til flere tusinde kroner, men glemmer backup… De satser på at webhotellet klarer det for dem, men webhotellet har kun backup i en begrænset periode og faktisk kan deres deres backup-system fejle… der findes også plugins, der automatisk tager backup af din side, men bliver de ikke vedligeholdt, så kan de også fejle.
