I'm about to make a crazy change to my website.
I want to experiment with changing my website’s theme and I’m scared all hell is going to break loose. Either it will work. Magically. Or everything will break and I’ll have to start over on a rebuild.
Then it hit me. I can create a 1-click backup of the site. This is super easy on the SiteGround GrowBig and GoGeek plans. (Sorry, this feature isn’t available on the StartUp plan.)
How To Manually Backup Your Website on SiteGround.
Here’s where you do it in Site Tools / Security / Backups:
If something goes wrong, you can click on the 3 dots vertical ellipsis and click Restore All Files & Databases.
Alternatively, Create A Staging Website
A Staging Website should be utilized for a website that is live and you are going to be making some big changes or large updates/upgrades.
This is also super easy to do in SiteGround’s Site Tools. Simply go to WordPress / Staging and Create A New Staging Copy.
