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.

For more information about how to back up the Web server, see Back Up and Restore the Web Server to a File or Tape.
