Drupal security updates
drush (https://github.com/drush-ops/drush). Requires shell access. This tool will make security updates trivial. This tool will also save you tons of time. For example, a db backup is as easy as this: drush sql-dump —result-file=../today.sql
Start with simple backup included in the hosting package. Keep an off-site backup since often the hosting backup services backup onto the same machine your hosting/db is on. Amazon S3, or even glacier, do cost, but are cheap and dependable. A cron job can rsync weekly to amazon or to our own server.
- get backups setup using the existing hosting platform. We should also document how long and how often they do backups.
- Then let’s setup syncs from these backup locations to the media server when it’s available.
