I think Yola's Servers do auto backups Alex , If it does clash , maybe email Yola.

Hi Alex,

We recommend that you try out any codes you are unsure of on a test site first. We don't do back ups of sites. If you break your site, you will need to rebuild it.

I hope this answers your question.

Just a possible misunderstanding on what Ruth said that I want to clear up. We certainly do multiple back ups of all our site data and we are in a position to restore all our customers sites simultaneously and quickly in the event of something unforseen going wrong. So in this respect Perko is correct.

However, Ruth is also correct: we are not able to restore individual sites because of the way this data is stored.

So yes, Alex, you will need to back up each page if you are going to experiment with code.

Yes, this could definitely be in a future release. We would like to provide a way to save a copy of your site, as well as a way to revert to a previous version of your site. We have to grow our infrastructure a bit first, but I am going to go out on a limb here and say that it would be useful for almost all our customers :)

Under Publishing Options, you can make a zip file of your site to download. Transfer this file to a storage medium and you will personally have your backup!
I feel sure you could then reload it back to Yola if you needed but Monigue can verify this, if she will.

Sorry Kent. This is not possible. There is a facility to download your site as a zipped file, for the purpose of editing it with other software or hosting it elsewhere. However, there is no option to re-upload a downloaded site back to Yola. The assumption is that once you have downloaded a site, you could edit it to the point that it is no longer compatible with our site builder. We need to provide a different solution for individual site backups and we are currently working towards this.

I understand. Could be intigrated alongside the zip option as "backup". But then, can't we just save site as another name too, then there would be two copies of the same site, just with only one published.

Hello Susan, there is no back-up option for a whole website with Yola. You will need to test your code on a test site that you create in your account. What's more, Yola websites are not downloadable. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you at the moment.
