How to plan your Web Snapshots

A planned snapshot of a website is a snapshot of the content of your website on a specific date, scheduled in advance.

In SW Hosting you can create scheduled snapshots of all your websites through the Scheduled Snapshots checkbox in the Dashboard of your service, in the SW Panel. The steps to create a planned SnapShot of your website are:

1. From the search box of your SW Panel, you must locate the service where the web on which you want to create a Snapshot is hosted

  • Make a SnapShot every day: You must indicate in the Execution parameters the time at which the SnapShot should be performed, the day it should start to be performed and the end date.

If you do not indicate a start date, the SnapShots will start instantly at the same time that they are scheduled. Also, if you do not indicate an end date, the SnapShots will be made periodically without end. enter image description here

  • Make a SnapShot every week: You must indicate the day of the week that the SnapShot will take place, in addition to configuring the time, start day and end day in Execution parameters. enter image description here

  • Make a SnapShot on one or more days of the year in particular: This option will provide us with a range of parameters that must be indicated, including the months that the SnapShot must be performed and the days of the month. Additionally, you must configure in Execution parameters the time that the SnapShots will take place, the start day and the end day.
