A data backup plan and schedule is critical for disaster recovery (e.g. hard drive failure, data corruption). Make sure to backup all important data on a regular basis. If the data is important, then you must back it up!
Wordpress has some very good instructions for backup and restore of a MySQL database, using either the mysql command line tool or phpMyAdmin. Please follow these instructions for backing up your ICA-AtoM data.
Digital Objects backup
If you or your users upload digital objects, you will also need to backup the files in the /web/uploads (before release 1.0.9) or /uploads (Release 1.0.9 and later) directory on a regular basis.
If you are actively translating the application interface, you will also need to backup the translation files in the /apps/qubit/i18n directory.
