What's a backup copy and how to use it?

In WebWave - website builder with no coding  - every day at 3:00 am a backup copy of all websites is made and  is kept for 30 days. In addition, whenever you publish a website, backup copies are saved, so you can restore a website in the builder.  

If you have changed some elements on your website and have saved them, but you are not happy with the outcome, your best option is to restore a backup copy and save the time you would spend on recreating the project.

  • Copy made by hand (one copy - making a new one overrides the previous)
  • Copy of the last 5 saves / auto-saves
  • Backup copy from the last 7 days (one, last save from each day) 
  • The last save from 7-14 days back
  • The last save from 15-21 days back
  • The last save from 22-30 days back

 

Website publication copies

  • Last publication
  • Publication from the last 7 days (one, last publication from each day)
  • The last publication from 7-14 days back

If your website doesn't have an active Premium Plan, you can only restore in the builder currently published website. In order to make any other backup copies, you need to activate a premium plan.
