Lee’s Website Mistakes
Lee Jackson started a theme in today’s episode by stating one of his biggest website mistakes was updating a Multisite install without backing up everything first. Having backups of your site is important because if an update causes something to break, you can revert to the original state.
How Lee handles this now is using Duplicator Pro to create restorable backups before updating plugins or themes on sites. The other thing they do is create nightly site backups in Google Drive or Dropbox.
