The Unity Control Panel provides a quick and easy method of obtaining a backup of any Hosted Database at any time.
Once logged into Unity, select ‘My Services‘ from the menu at the top, and then select ‘Hosted Services‘.
Click on the ‘Database‘ link next to the domain the database is hosted under.
On the next screen, you will see the ‘Backup Database‘ at the top of the page. Select the database you would like to create a backup for, and press the green ‘Submit‘ button.
The database backup file will be given a timestamp in the following format, ‘database_name_2011-02-22_175504.bak’.
You can then log into the site via FTP and download the backup file. If you need assistance with logging into your site via FTP, please contact Support.
If you need any assistance with this process, or encounter any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact our Technical Support Department.
