How to produce an backup of the site or alternatively how import an exported site

Résolue

Hello dear readers of @hubspot,

 

I do have an question regarding the backup of the site.

I am about to do some changes to the site structure, so i would like to have an backup of the site.

On the site there is mentioned that such a thing doesn't really exist.

Question 1: Is that true ?

 

On the Marketing => Website => Website-Pages, there is an button for the export of the sites and blogs entries (HTML).

Question 2: Where is the alternative button of importing all of that back ?

Question 3: If one were to delete the sites, could one via the import function restore all the pages and the content within them ?

 

Best Regards,

Roman

Hi @Anonymous1234 

 

Yes, it is correct that there is no such thing as a backup - it's all cloud based and there are various "trash" options to restore some content (design tools has one, website pages does NOT, files do).

 

You can export content from HubSpot - this is with the intention you'd be leaving the CMS, it's not meant for import back.

 

As far as import, because of drag and drop modules, it's not possible to import HTML pages.

 

If you delete evertyhign, there isn't an option to import or restore it.

 

If you want to back up your coded files, you could pull them from Design Tools via the CLI using local development tools.

 

If your theme is from the @hubspot or @marketplace folders, you can't make copies (only custom themes).

 

My suggestion would be to create a new theme to work from and use Content Staging (requires CMS Pro) to rebuild your site without disrupting your live site - if that's not an option, buy or build a new theme, build out the website pages and go through the process of unpublishing swapping the URLs with your new pages (happy to explain this in more detail if needed).
