Backup best practices

Hi @omisnomis :wave: The best way to have all the content backed up at the moment, is doing an export:

This ensures you have all the information stored in db ready to be restored on current or new Ghost instance.

Then, there are 2 other parts that need to be backed up manually:

  1. The /content/images folder (or the place you have configured to store images and other assets)
  2. The theme

Additionally, if you are using custom routes.yaml for dynamic routing or redirects.json for custom redirects, they should be backed up separately as well.

These components should be enough to fully restore a new instance :+1: Let me know if you need any more information ;)
