Which applications types are supported?

When creating a backup job for Cloudways using Snapshooter, the system will automatically detect the databases for Wordpress, Magento v2, and Laravel (Cloudways one-click installs). However, for any other CMS, you will need to set up the backup manually. Snapshooter will backup all web files, but for Cloudways one-click type apps, the database will be backed up automatically. If you are using any othe type of app, you will need to set up a separate backup job for the database.

Can you restore a Single Site?

Yes! Each website on your server gets a separate database and file system backup allowing you to restore a single database or file system. You are free to select as many or as little segments of the backup to restore from using our recovery system.

SnapShooter gives us infinite flexibility in configuring our backup policies and frees us from the confines of rigid, bare-bones functionality provided by VM vendors themselves.
