watch at regular intervals. The more usage your application
handles, the more important is the maintenance.

status. The page will report if system is up and if database
connection can be established. This page can be used for uptime
- Manage your database. A

the stability of Opinio. Opinio relies on a stable database. Make
frequent backups of the database. Refer to the documentation of the
database you are running for more information.
- Make frequent backups.
Make backups of the entire Opinio folder structure. Preferably
backups with history, so that the state of the application can be
rolled back in time to fix problems, look at log files etc.
- Monitor your server.
Monitor your server for potential problems, such as memory usage,
disk usage, network bandwidth usage, processor usage, etc. Needless
to say, Opinio relies on a stable server.
