Boonex Dolphin Site Backup, Server Security & Domain Transfer Assistance
I have a Boonex Dolphin site (v. 7.1.3.) that is almost ready for launch (so far it has only been used for configuration & testing). It is hosted on a dedicated CentOS server from Zarconia with a Plesk control panel. I am completely new to server management and so I’m looking for someone to help me in 3 areas:
TASK 1: TAINING - SHOW ME HOW TO BACK-UP MY SITE
Apart from the Raid drives on the server I am not currently running any backups. I’d like training on how to backup my site on regular basis and also on how to transfer the backup file to a HDD. (We can run the training session via a Skype or Join.me screen share or similar).
TASK 2: TRAINING - SHOW ME HOW TO MAINTAIN SECURE SERVER ACCESS
I want to understand how to change the access information for my server so that I can periodically update passwords etc to ensure my server remains secure. For example, an ftp account was setup for 2 third party module developers to use to install some Dolphin modules, I’d like to understand how I can change the login details once they are finished with to maintain security.
TASK 3: MOVE MY SITE TO A NEW DOMAIN
Before we launch I want to transfer my site (and licence) to a new domain. Both domains (current and future) are registered and managed through GoDaddy.
