How to Back Up and Restore Your WordPress Website

3:47:00 PM |
After having your WordPress installed on your hosting. The first thing you should do is to backup your website. There are many methods that can help you to backup your files and database easily. However, in this post, I'll show you how to use BackupWordPress plugin to backup your WordPress website:

I. How to Backup Your WordPress Website

Step 1: Go to your Plugin tab and search for BackupWordPress plugin then install and active it.

Step 2: Go to Tools -> Backups

Step 3: Schedule your backup

After finishing backup your website, there's an email that will alert you about this. You can download the backup to your computer if you want.

II. How to Restore Your WordPress Website

Step 1: backup your files

The backup site files consist of three folders called wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes plus a number of php files and a .htaccess file. You will need to upload the site files to your site and overwrite the existing files. This can be done via FTP using the file manager provided by your hosting company panel or via an FTP or SFTP client (such as Filezilla for PCs or Transmit for Mac). Make sure you choose to replace the existing files with the new ones. If you are restoring your site after a hack or virus attack it is better to delete all the site files prior to uploading the new files in case additional files have been added.

Step 2: backup your database. This should automatically overwrite the old tables. There are a number of different ways that this can be done:

  • Using a tool such as phpMyAdmin. This and similar tools are usually available via your hosting company panel.
  • Using a desktop tool.
  • MySQL commands via the command line prompt.
  • For more information see WordPress codex article on restoring your database from backup.

How to Install SugarCRM Community Edition (GoDaddy)

8:31:00 PM |
It is really struggling to install SugarCRM Community Edition on GoDaddy hosting. It finally works after the third time trying. However, after that I got the problem with Email setting "Inbound Email cannot function without the IMAP c-client libraries enabled/compiled". The only thing they tell me is to give up SugarCRM or change your hosting service. But wait! I'll show you the solution for this problem. 

I. How To Install SugarCRM Community Edition (GoDaddy)

Step 1: Download SugarCRM to your computer. If you use another hosting service, you can install directly from the application management. 

Step 2: Unzip and upload to your host using FTP client such as FileZilla (E.g. http://yourhosting/sugarcrm)

Step 3: Change the permission to 755. The files and directories that must be writable by your web server are:

  • config.php
  • config_override.php - does not exist by default but is created when modifying System Settings
  • sugarcrm.log
  • cache/ and all subdirectories and files
  • custom/ and all subdirectories and files
  • data/ and all subdirectories and files
  • modules/ and all subdirectories and files

Step 4: Go to your Cpanel and create a MySQL account.

Step 5: Start to install SugarCRM by entering: http://yourhosting/sugarcrm and follow the instruciton.

II. Troubleshooting (GoDaddy)

1. If you can't see any image or get structure errors, reupload the error file and check the permission. (Eg. ..\sugarcrm\include\MVC\View\SugarView.php)

2. The most popular error is the IMAP c-client libraries. In order to solve this problem, you have to edit the config_override.php file by adding this line "$sugar_config['allow_pop_inbound'] = true;", so you can use the POP3 instead of IMAP.
