Do you know what to do when your Drupal website goes down? What have you done to prevent losing all your hard work or experiencing lengthy downtime? In this session, we’ll help you prevent, detect and recover from a problem using simple, inexpensive tools. We’ll identify some of the biggest threats to your site, discuss how to avoid them and learn to mitigate the damage they cause.

The session will go over the vulnerable parts of your Drupal website (domain registrar, dns, web server, database etc.) and some ways they might fail. We will suggest some tools and techniques that every Drupal site owner can use to detect problems, prevent problems, and recover quickly when problems occur. You don't need an enterprise-level budget or dedicated DevOps team to have a plan in place when disaster strikes.

We will:

  • Identify things that can fail and cause your website downtime.
  • Share inexpensive tools to prevent, detect and recover each of those things.
  • Document the information you should have on-hand to speed up downtime recovery.
