Webserver backup and upgrades
« on: April 11, 2021, 02:33:18 pm »
I just completed a full backup of the server.  I host a few websites on this server and I am about to add my ecommerce web shop "lytsign.com" to the server.  This requires an encryption function called SSL so the website will have an "https" prefix and a certificate that verifies site ownership and validates the server's address for security reasons.

I don't intend to mess with my other sites, but adding a site with ssl is new to me so I backed everything up just in case I mess up.  I am pretty sure I can pull it off, but better safe than sorry.

So, please be aware that if I goof and have to restore the backup, we will lose any new posts made after approximately 1pm today.

Still working on this...it is going to take me days or even weeks because I'm doing a little at a time.  Just updated everything on the server and did another full backup this morning.
