Web Hosting - Web Site Backup and Recovery

The Web Hosting servers utilize DoIT's Bucky Backup service to archive web site files nightly. We also capture a MySQL dump of every database nightly to protect data and recover it as needed.

However, we strongly encourage you to:

-- Keep full, up-to-date local copies of your website files and MySQL databases.

-- Utilize your test site location for quality assurance

Restore Your Files

Email your restore requests to webhosting@doit.wisc.edu

Restoration Criteria

Files can be restored via Bucky Backup according to the following criteria:

  • We can restore either of the two most recent versions of any file on the web server.
  • We can restore a file deleted from the web server up to a maximum of 60 days after the file was deleted. After 60 days, deleted files can no longer be restored.
  • MySQL databases are copied nightly and saved for 9 days. We can also perform point-in-time restores of MySQL databases for LAMP restricted data accounts.
