  • Peter La Fond: How a Solid Backup Strategy Can Save Your Livelihood and Sanity

    WordCamp Raleigh 2018Speaker: Peter La Fond

    June 5, 2018 — Website owners dedicate a lot of resources and time for even the most basic of websites. Unfortunately… Servers do fail. Websites get hacked. And crucial website files can accidentally be deleted. Are you and your team prepared for the worst?

    Most website owners have a false sense of security in regards to how they’ll recover from a website disaster. Backups are your last line of defense when things go terribly wrong. And, a reliable backup system can be the difference between a care-free day at the park with your family and a mental breakdown.

    This talk will approach the idea of ‘Backing Up’ as a strategic disaster recovery system as opposed to a mere copy of website files. We’ll cover concepts like ‘Redundancy’, ‘Single Point of Failure’ and ‘Cold Storage’. If you’re a small business owner or website administrator, then this talk is for you.

  • Terri Orlowski: Your Site Is Only As Safe As Your Last Good Backup

    WordCamp Lehigh Valley 2017Speaker: Terri Orlowski

    October 19, 2017 — I talk about backing up your website a lot. I think my friends (and maybe some clients) are sick of hearing about it. But I know what it feels like to lose a site – to wake up one morning and have it simply be gone, or hacked, or inaccessible because of server issues. With regular backups, you can avoid this issue and restore or move your site quickly so it’s not affecting your business.

    During this presentation, I’ll show you some of my favorite plugins to backup/restore your site, as well as how to do it manually.

  • Michael Oeser: Backup und Restore – Kür oder Pflicht

    WordCamp Nuremberg 2016Speaker: Michael Oeser

    April 21, 2016 — Die Wichtigkeit eines Backups kann man nicht oft genug unterstreichen. Wem schon einmal die Website oder der ganze Server „abgeraucht“ ist, wird sich schnell darüber im Klaren, dass es sich hierbei um eine Pflichtübung handelt. Das einfache Wiederherstellen (Restore) der Daten wird dabei aber von vielen von uns oft vergessen. Zahlreiche Plugins gaukeln eine One-Click-Lösung vor. Was aber, wenn die WordPress Installation nicht mehr erreichbar ist und das Plugin nicht mehr funktioniert? In seinem Vortrag zeigt uns Michael verschiedene BackUp-/Restore Lösungen und erklärt Pros und Contras.
