Before You Begin

Do a BackupĀ 

If your OpenCart is not a fresh installation, it is strongly recommended to do a full backup of your files and database. Most hosting providers have a built-in website backup option, which can be accessed from your cPanel. For more information on how to create a backup of your files and database, please contact your web hosting provider.
