TNG Software

The best way to backup your TNG Software is to keep a copy of the TNG zipfile you downloaded for the TNG install and the one you downloaded for the upgrade. Note that if Simply Hosting installed TNG for you on their system, it is still a good idea for you to download the full TNG install at the time you signed up for the service.

Note that you might also want to download the full version zip file when you do an upgrade, as a backup of the current TNG software.

TNG Mods

You may want to keep a copy of the TNG mods you install on your local computer, although a current copy should be available on the TNG Wiki.

Manual Changes

If you do not use the Mod Manager to make all your changes to TNG files, you should keep a file that documents any changes that you make manually to TNG files, including style sheets and configuration changes.

The alternative is to create a Mod Manager config file for the changes.

MySQL Software

Your hosting service provider should have a backup of the MySQL server software.

PHP Software

Your hosting service provider should have a backup of the PHP software.

phpMyAdmin Software

Your hosting service provider should have a backup of the phpMyAdmin software.
