I setup my WordPress multisite using multi-db 256db's.
After a few days, I finally have everything exactly how I want it in order to get a snapshot of my entire system. I have created 6 sites, activated plugins, themes, configured pro-sites, memberships, a ton of plugins, etc on each site as I want it for now.
My next step is going to be a HUGE one, so I am trying to get a 'snapshot' of my system as it is just in case everything does not go well.
First of all:
I could not find the select box to simply backup my entire system. It was making me choose one site at a time, which makes zero sense to me.
I chose to backup to dropbox for now, and even after 2 hours, nothing has shown up in my dropbox folder other than the initial folder and file that were created when I approved the app.
*I am not backing up files but just all the db tables, I have backup of the files already
I did choose to have it update right away, so I am guessing snapshot dropbox export is just broken...
Is there any reliable way of getting a snapshot of my entire system as it is right now using software from wpmu?
My next step is to activate bbPress and use the importer (my company wrote it for JJJ) to import the vbulletin forums.
I'm talking 50k members and hundreds of thousands of posts. Obviously if something goes wrong, and it could, the only way to fix this is to start over.
Because I created 256 db's by hand, and spend literally 40+ hrs configuring everything. I want to make ABSOLUTE CERTAIN that I have a proper backup that i can restore before I do this with vbulletin.
So..... what are my options?
Can I trust snapshot, and how do I get a mirror of everything on the network?
thank you for your time.
