Important files and folders
Although you will always be able to download the WS.WebTV files from our Website, it is very important to keep a recent copy of the following files and folders (besides the database, of course...):
/config/random_name.pek (a file with .pek extension - since WS.WebTV 2.4)
In case you have modified files like image files, CSS files, templates, or language files, we recommend you to back them up and keep a record of the modifications; that way, if you need to reinstall or update your WebTV, you will always be able to re-apply the modifications.
