Jetpack Backup: Roll Back Your WooCommerce Site Without Losing Orders

Here’s a dilemma: what happens if your WooCommerce site has a problem and the quickest and best way to fix it is to roll back to a previous version? The dilemma is, if you roll back the database, you would lose literal customer orders that are stored in the database. That’s not acceptable for an eCommerce store.

Good news: Jetpack Backup won’t do you wrong like that. You can still restore to a prior point, but you won’t lose any customer order or product data.

Do you lose all the orders that came in since that last backup? Nope.

Will the inventory get all screwed up? Nope.

What about the new products that were added after the restore point? Still there.

All that data is treated as immutable. The way that it plays out is that the database is restored to that point (along with everything else) and that all the new product and order data that has changed since then is replayed on top of the database after the restore.

With Jetpack Backup, there’s absolutely no guesswork. Its real-time snapshots feature has a unique feature that protects WooCommerce customer and product data when rolling back things back so you get the best-case scenario: readily available backups that preserves customer orders and product information.

That’s just one of the magical benefits you get from such a deep integration between Jetpack and WooCommerce. There are others, of course! But you can imagine just what a big deal this specific integration for any WooCommerce-powered store.

And, hey, Jetpack Backup is sold à la carte. So, if backups are all you want from Jetpack, then you can get just that and that alone.
