How many times have you heard that you MUST backup your WordPress website? Of course you must! It’s taken hours of work to build, why would you risk losing it all?
When I started to research how to backup my WordPress website, all the solutions seemed a little beyond me. As mentioned in my previous blog post, I am still fairly new to WordPress. The reason it appeals to me is that you don’t need to know about html coding to build an impressive looking website.
Initially I was looking at options that required knowledge of File Transfer Protocol, something that I was not familiar with. It seemed a little complicated and I wanted to find something that was easier to use so I started researching recommended WordPress Plugins.
My research took me to a Plugin called UpdraftPlus and guess what. It’s SO easy to install and use! It was exactly what I was looking for. This Plugin gives you step-by-step instructions on how to install it. Once set up, it automatically backs up your website without you having to do a thing. I get an email once a week to let me know that backup has been successful and it’s all stored in Dropbox for me. Easy!
And check me out, ‘researching Plugins’. It was only a year ago that I’d hear the word ‘Plugin’ and assume people were talking about air fresheners…
