About CodeGuard

 

CodeGuard is known as one of the leading providers of cloud-based site backup tools and services, servicing more than a quarter million websites and databases. Its services are backed up with 99.9% reliability levels, and are enjoyed by more than 50,000 clients from all over the world.

 

Frequency of CodeGuard Backups

 

One of the best things about CodeGuard is that it backs up MySQL databases and files every single day. While the time that the backups are generated vary every day, once it detects any change, users are going to be notified via a Change Alert email message. The notification contains information about any additions, modifications, or deletions that have taken place. The length of time the backup is created depends on the website’s or database’s size.

 

Initial Backup

 

Once you have been connected to CodeGuard, it is going to start performing an initial backup of your website. During the initial backup, all files that you have set for CodeGuard to have access to are going to be completely retrieved and compiled.

 

After this process has been completed, the following backups are going to be differential. This applies both in terms of transferred files and stored files. When this process is being completed, you can view real-time updates.

 

The Backup Process

 

While CodeGuard is running the initial backup, the following are going to be performed:

 

  1. Process Initiation. The service is going to verify all of the credentials that have been provided.

 

  1. File Pickup. CodeGuard is going to analyse your website’s file structure, prior to a git repository being created into a cloud server.

 

  1. File Transit. All of the files that are going to be copied and sent to the git repository are finalized and confirmed. After this, the files are then going to be sent over to the git repository, which is already on the cloud server.

 

  1. Final Delivery. From the git repository, the files are to be moved onto the cloud server. They are encrypted, ensuring security during the transfer. After this, the files are then deleted from the cloud server.

 

Accessing the CodeGuard Dashboard

 

When you want to access the CodeGuard Dashboard, you just need to head to your cPanel account. There, you can find a tab for CodeGuard.

 

After getting CodeGuard, you are required to sign into your account. When you access your account for the first time, you are going to notice a change in the page after navigating to it from cPanel. A Login button is  going to be available, as well as gray downgrade buttons and yellow upgrade buttons surrounding the plan offers.

 

Logging into CodeGuard

 

To get started in using CodeGuard, just perform the following steps:

 

  1. Log into your cPanel account.
  2. Go to the section that says “Special Offers.”
  3. Click on the icon that says “Cloud Backup.”

 

As you can see, it’s easy to start using CodeGuard, so take advantage of this now.
