WordPress Management: Backups

One of the downsides of doing business in the Internet Age is that we are constantly under the potential threat of having our websites and social media accounts being infected by malicious viruses and our business and personal data stolen, manipulated or even being completely wiped out.

Backup Creator - Back Up, Duplicate & Keep Your WordPress Site Protected

If you own anything where data can be visited online like a website for your business, then you need to prioritize digital security and the importance of having a digital security and site recovery plan.

As well as creating an online security plan for your business, you will also want to protect your files from internal and external issues that can result in losing data and cause significant damage or disruption to your business. Having a way to restore your site, files or data in extreme cases is something that most people only appreciate after tragedy has struck.

Backup Creator - Back Up, Clone And Keep Your WP Websites And Blogs Protected

Then again, you may just want to save time. If parts of your business involve setting up a number of websites or blogs, having a simple way to duplicate website data from one website to another can be quite convenient.

As the saying goes, “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Backing up your WordPress site or blog, therefore, is something that everyone needs to do. The truth, however, is that left to their own devices, site owners rarely do it, or don’t do it as often as these things should be done.

Let’s face it … getting hacked, losing data, and making errors that end up disrupting your site is all part of doing business online. If something this tragic were to ever happen to you, then you would need a way to restore old content, restore your site to an earlier version, or complete reinstall your site and information.

Fortunately, if your website or blog is powered by WordPress, then you can easily create backups of your WordPress database and website files, clone your site to another location and restore previous backups of your data.

Good website management involves performing regular backups of your website’s files and data. With WordPress, you can schedule and automate backups, but sometimes you also need to perform manual backups. This section of the WordPress Management Tutorials module contains tutorials on managing and performing WordPress backups.

Info

Some tutorials in this module may require editing your WordPress template or server files. If you need help modifying template or server files please contact a professional or experienced WordPress user for assistance (learn where to get help with WordPress).

Important: Always do a backup of your WordPress site (files and data) before modifying any files. If you don’t want to back up your data manually, then get help from a WordPress professional, or use backup plugins.
