In this chapter you have learned the various ways of backing up different types of data in Moodle. You learned how to create course-level, site-level, and system-level backups as well as data recovery from each type. It is important that your Moodle backup strategy fits in with your organization’s overall disaster recovery plan.

Moodle offers a good range of backup and restore options. However, sometimes there are problems with some of the built-in backup and recovery operations. The common causes for problems are time-outs, memory overload, archives that cannot be read, and third-party add-ons. Be aware that these issues exist and run test recoveries to be on the safer side.
