IconGears.pngTech demo drop-in: Backing up your work

Just as we back up the main Grad Dip site regularly, you, as a student, are similarly expected to back up your own work online in the same way as you are expected to retain a copy of other assessment items, such as essays. If you are using one of the possible blogging tools suggested in ELPC G1 Week 1, then follow the instructions below. If you have any trouble backing up your site, or you don’t know how to back up your site, then you must tell me.

WordPress
  1. Go to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Go to Tools > Export > Download export file
  3. Download the file to your hard drive (or flash stick or other drive). It will be saved as an ‘xml’ file
  4. Keep your exported file safe

Blogger
  1. Go to your Blogger dashboard
  2. Go to the Settings tab
  3. Go to Blog tools > Export blog > Download blog
  4. Download the file to your hard drive (or flash stick or other drive). It will be saved as an ‘xml’ file
  5. Keep your exported file safe

Tumblr
  1. Go to the Tumblr backup tool
  2. Type in the first part of your Tumblr address. You do not need to add ‘.tumblr.com’. So, if your Tumblr address is ‘elpcjournal.tumblr.com’ then you only need to type in ‘elpcjournal’.
  3. Leave all remaining fields as they are, that is, in the default position
  4. Click ‘Go!’
  5. Once your site has been ‘fetched’, you will need to save it. In your FireFox or Internet Explorer browser, go to:
    • File > Save Page As
    • Download the page to your hard drive (or flash stick or other drive). It will be saved as an ‘html’ file
    • Keep it safe

Advanced tools
If you are an advanced user and you wish to take an html copy of an entire site that you own, I suggest the following:

If you have any trouble backing up your site, or you don’t know how to back up your site, then you must tell me.
