Drupal Site Backup Without Using Command line

By | 17th Feb 2022 | 1 min read

Have you ever faced any difficulties while taking the backup of the Drupal site? Developers usually need to take the backup of the Drupal site during the time of the security update.

We have options to take backup using the command line. For example, we can use the Drush command to take the backup, and we also can follow other commands including the mysqldump command to take backup. But sometimes especially when you create a Drupal site in an environment where you don't have access to the command line to execute drush or other commands, the Backup and Migrate module comes in handy.

Drupal Backup and Migrate Module

The Backup and Migrate module allows us to take the backup MySQL database, code, and files of a Drupal site. By enabling the module you can dump some or all of your database tables to a file download or save to a file on the server or offsite, and to restore from an uploaded or previously saved database dump.

Download the module directly from drupal.org.  Check out the tutorial video link below which will help you understand how it works:

So now you can take the backup of your site without using the command line.
