I have hosted my website on a ec2. So when the ec2 goes down and I reboot it, I need to change the dns from the old to the new dns (micro instance).
Until now I was taking a manual backup of my wordpress page. I tar'ed the /var/www/website files to a tar, and mysqldump of the database to a sql file. And when I need to restore, I do a search replace in the sql file all localhost to that dns (where I am restoring) and untar the tar file to /var/www/website of my new host.
But with ColorWay theme, all my settings are lost. I wonder where else will a theme store all its data ? Am I missing something basic here ?
Infact any theme, I loose some setting or the other. Sometimes the menu choice, sometimes a few other settings.
