Magento Open Source gives you the ability to back up different parts of the system—such as the file system, database, and media files—and to rollback automatically. A record for each backup appears in the grid on the Backups page. Deleting a record from the list deletes the archived file as well. Database backup files are compressed using the .GZ format. For the system backups and database and media backups, the .TGZ format is used. As a best practice, you should restrict access to backup tools, and back up before installing extensions and updates.
Restrict access to backup tools. Access to the Backups and Rollback management tool can be restricted by configuring user permissions for backup and rollback resources. To restrict access, leave the corresponding checkbox unselected. If you need to grant access to rollback resources, you must grant access to backup resources as well.
Back up before installing extensions and updates. Always perform a backup before you install an extension or update. Component Manager includes a backup option that you can use before installing an extension or upgrading to a new release.
