Make a backup/working Copy of your Board.


1.download filezilla
2. install it and connect to your server. You should have an email from your hosting company with all the connection
details for ftp. In many cases it will be be the same username/password you use to log into your hosting control panel.

3. On the left side, right click and choose "create directory"
4. name it "board" ( no quotes )
5. right click on the new "board" directory and choose "enter directory"
6. on the right side of filezilla ( your board files ) click once on the adm folder to hi-lite it then scroll down to the bottom of the list.
7. hold down the shift key on your keyboard and click the web.config file at the bottom of the list. This should hi-lite all the files and folders on the right side.
if it does not then try again.
8. once they are all hi-lited, then drag and drop them all over to the open "board" directory/folder on the left side. The download should begin.
9. Ok you now have a working /backup copy of all the board files on your computer in a folder named "board".
