With Gibbon up and running, you will want to protect your installation in case of disaster, allowing yourself to recover.
Our recommendation is to use a shell script (example here for *nix servers) to copy all important files and database data to an external drive, which should be rotated to maintain online and offline copies of your data.
On *nix servers, you can use cron to schedule the script to run on a regular basis (e.g. every night at 01:00):
0 1 * * * cd /home/user/ ; script_backup.sh
