  • Hello,

    As per my experience, always take backup of web.config file of your web application and central admin before installing WSP. I don't think you need anything else apart from this but here is one good PPT for best practice. Worth to read it.

  • It will be good if you can take following backups......but it depends on what components you are installing with wsp, you should be ready with fall back option

    Backup virtual directory of web application 
    Backup of Site
