You can also adjust settings and edit your site without worrying that your web page will go offline. So as you can see, maintaining a backup of the site is pretty important.

    The functionality is built-in Magento 2 to ensure that the backup is created of the data and then it can restore all the codes, media and also your site’s database whenever you require it. At times it is a critical task to restore backups.

    Backup can be done in 2 ways:

    Backup via the Command line
    First off, you need to switch to the Magento file system owner. Then use the backup command. The magento setup:backup [--code] [--media] [--db] command includes the next tasks: switches a store into maintenance mode; database, media, system file backups; switches off the maintenance mode. E.g.: the file system and database backup: magento setup:backup --code --db.

    Backup via the Admin Panel
    Firstly, login to your Admin Panel and go to System> Tools> Backups:

    Step 1: Choose the backup type
    In the upper-right corner select one of the available backup types: System Backup, Database and Media Backup, Database Backup
    The System Backup creates and saves a complete copy of the database and the file system. Besides, putting a tick in a special checkbox you can choose whether to include the media folder
    The Database and Media Backup creates a full copy of the current database and the media folder
    The Database Backup forms and stores a copy of the database only.

    Step 2: Check the showings before the backup
    Use only a-z/A-Z letters, 0-9 numbers, and spaces when creating a backup name;
    It is recommended to tick the Maintenance mode box during the backup:
    maintenance-mode-magento
    It is used to disable bootstrapping, e.g.: maintaining, upgrading, reconfiguring a website.
    !If you run a small e-commerce website, you can avoid using the mode for not to lose potential customers!
    The thing is that when the mode is switched on a user sees a default Magento 2 window saying the website is currently inaccessible. When switching off or disabling the mode a customer can use the website, but the page load speed can be significantly reduced.
    Choose to exclude/include the media folder form the System Backup;
    Click the Ok button when the settings are completed.

    Step 3: See if the backup went off well
    If you see a message saying the backup is completed and you can move to the next step, this means you don’t have any issues with it;
    After a backup is completed successfully you can process with any of the following steps: install new purchases/updates; components updating/disabling/enabling/uninstalling;
    If errors are displayed, look here to eliminate the glitches.

    Rolling back via the Command line
    To roll back to the store backup you’ve made previously you need to remember the filename of the backup, which is to be restored.

    Step 1: Find the backup filename
    Switch to the Magento file system owner;
    Enter magento info:backups:list into the command line to learn the name of the latest backup you need;
    Roll back to a previous backup by typing the next command: magento setup:rollback [-c|--code-file=""] [-m|--media-file=""] [-d|--db-file=""].

    Step 2: Revise the result
    Then you’ll see one of the two messages:
    message-positive-backup
    or
    message-negative-backup
    If you see the second one, try this link to solve the issue.
