Backing Up the Web Server
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
Before you enable client access to the Web server, perform a complete image backup. The purpose of performing this image backup is to provide a point-in-time snapshot of the Web server. If you need to restore the Web server in the event of a failure, you can use this backup to restore the Web server to a known configuration.
|Do not continue unless you have a successful backup of the entire Web server. Otherwise, you can lose Web sites, applications, or data that you deployed to the Web server.|
