Backup and Restore your WordPress Blog and Portfolio

Here is the link to the tutorial that will teach you how to export the WordPress blog (or the student iFolio) and import it in a new personal WordPress site. In the process, you will be asked to put in the staff or students’ credentials to access the site.

Student blog site address is : http://sites.cdnis.edu.hk/students/

Login Username is : student number

Login Password is : student’s network password (if forgot, please obtain from OneDoor)

If a leaving student has a WordPress account, it can be exported and imported onto a new personal WordPress account. Please be reminded that the free WordPress personal blog doesn’t restore your media files (ie. photos, videos, audio files). If needed, after importing onto a new site, the media files could be downloaded to a personal space for storage. Or choose to apply for a paid (with media) WordPress account at https://wordpress.com/.

Students should export their WordPress files before the last day of attending CDNIS.  After that the account will be disabled.

See this video tutorial (https://vimeo.com/116316322) for instructions.

Backup And Download Your Google Data

You can download the data associated with your Google Account so that you can use it in another service or keep a copy for your records.

You can request this info using the “Google Takeout” tool. Here’s how:

Start your download

  1. Visit the Download your data page.
  2. Select the Google products you’d like to include in your download and select Next.
  3. Choose the file type that you’d like your data in and how you want to get it (either by a download link or directly into your Google Drive).
  4. Select Create archive.

Once the archive is created, you’ll get an email to let you know it’s ready. Depending on the amount of information in your account, this process could take a few minutes or several hours, but most people get their link the same day they request it.
