Hi everyone.

If I want to back up the site, is it as easy as:

ZIppiing up the folder for my site, and unzipping it back? Will that restore my opencart site?

Well, just don't forget, to also download ( NOT BACKUP BY OC ADMIN )
your entire Database, by use of the Server ADMIN MySql Tool, including
it's Tables and everything. Just in case, you ever need to restore a 'complete'
Database, for what reason ever, or into another Server Site, because the
OC Admin Tool only backup/restores the Table CONTENT, but not the tables

And after you downloaded your complete Shop File Content, remove the
image Cache Content, as well as VqMod Cache and System/Extension/ Cache
Content, because all this will be restored automatically, if the Software needs
to be uploaded to a Server again. This because, depending on mainly image files,
it could take a long time, to upload masses of such data for not one good reason.
Good Luck! ;)
