When you purchase CodeGuard you'll be prompted to connect your site to CodeGuard via FTP, SFTP or MySQL. The method through which you choose to connect depends on your familiarity with the process, your server configuration and the type of connection you want to setup.
Once connected, CodeGuard will begin running an initial backup on the website. During this process, a complete data retrieval of all files that CodeGuard has access to will be compiled.
After the initial backup, future backups are differential, both in the files that are transferred and the files that are stored on your behalf. It is during this process that you will also be able to view real-time updates on the backup process.
There are four main steps within the initial backup process:
After the initial backup, whenever CodeGuard detects a change to the site's source code, the backup process outlined above will take place for the files that were affected by the change.

On-demand backups are available to CodeGuard Professional, Premium and Enterprise plans. This feature allows users to create backups whenever desired in addition to the daily automated backups.

Your backup will be queued to begin shortly.
Checking the Progress of a Backup
After you click the Run Backup Now button, the button will be replaced with the text 'Backup was requested' with a check mark next to it.
If the backup was completed, it will be listed in the Backup History with the date, time and details showing what was changed.
