I have recently started working for a company that has a magento website. I am not familiar with this platform at all. Are there instructions on making a copy of my website so I can try to make changes there first before I attempt on the real website? Is this what I would want to do to be able to play and learn without messing anything up? All I have experience with is wp websites.
If you have access to the hosting service then I would recommend just making an image.
There is a backup option under System >> Tools but someone else might be better placed to discuss the pros/cons as I haven’t had to use it in anger.
Great to see you on the forum. We’ll do our best to look after you here.
I’m doing my best to try and put out a tutorial video next week on how to migrate Magento from one server to another. Thus allowing you to simply move your website or create new development environments.
I believe this would essentially answer your question in great detail if you can hold tight?
