Backup Creator – WordPress Backup Plugin

One of the serious consequences of doing business in today’s virtual economy is that we are constantly under the potential threat of digital theft, having our web assets hacked into and our business and personal data destroyed.

If you manage anything where data can be visited online like a business blog or website, then you need to carefully consider website security and the importance of having a digital security and site recovery plan.

As well as developing an online security plan for your business, you will also want to protect your files from mistakes that can result in loss of data and cause significant damage or disruption to your business. Having a way to completely restore your site, files or data in extreme cases is something that most people only appreciate once tragedy has struck.

You may also just want to save time. If areas of your business require working with a number of websites or blogs, having an efficient way to duplicate website information from one site to another would be quite convenient.

As any experienced website manager has learned, “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Backing up your WP web data, therefore, is key. The truth, however, is that left to their own devices, very few site owners ever do it, or don’t do it as often as it should be done.

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

Fortunately, if you use WordPress, then it’s easy to create backups of your WordPress database and website or blog files, clone your site to another location and restore previous backups of your site.

Plugin Tips

Here are some great uses for the Backup Creator plugin:

Document Your Website Processes In Real-Time.

Instead of spending so much time documenting all of the processes you would normally have to document when setting up new sites, you can simply set up your blog exactly how you want it, make a backup copy|reproduce the site and then restore it somewhere else and you’ve now got an exact, “documented” copy of your blog setup.

For example, let’s say that you want to set up multiple websites using identical plugins and settings in different niche markets. This could be for a national company, or a travel agency with offices in several locations, where each store will look after their own separate blog. Think of all the time spent tweaking and finetuning your discussion settings, widgets and sidebars, configuring SEO plugins and navigation menus, creating site categories, customizing the theme, etc. Now you can save loads of time and install a fully-functioning, completely configured site every single time with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Restore A Backup To A Different Site With Correct Internal Reference Links.

Simply downloading WordPress files and uploading file backups won’t duplicate your blogs successfully. You also need to copy the WordPress database and ensure that your data references the new domain. Otherwise, your WP database data will be restored to another site, but still be pointing back to the old domain. That’s why it’s important to use a WordPress backup plugin that is specifically designed to clone sites. This lets you perform a backup of site ”A” in seconds and restore it to site “B” with all your theme customizations, plugin and site settings and configurations intact, once again, saving you hours – even weeks of work, and ensuring that all URLs have been configured correctly.

Don’t Waste Time Fixing Serious Problems … Restore!

Here’s another useful time-saving tip: if your site ever gets hacked, or an unauthorized user somehow gets in and causes some kind of damage to your site, don’t spend days or weeks trying to repair or figure out the problem, just make a backup of your site, delete your old site, and restore a previous working copy. Your site is now immediately restored and you can send the damaged files to an expert who can then try to understand how your site got broken into and how to fix or identify any vulnerabilities.

Here’s one last tip:

Keep A Historical Record Of Your Website’s Evolution.

Imagine that a couple of years from now your business has grown and transformed into an online success. Wouldn’t it be great to show people how it all began? Or maybe you’ve made your site so complicated and would like to restore things to a simpler place. Perhaps you’ve accidentally deleted a bunch of articles and other important content and want to get those back.

If you keep a weekly backup of your site, the chances of losing important information are minimal because you no longer have to worry about where you have stored or organized all your files. Just recall the time you remember you had that content, restore your backup (note: it can be retrieved from anywhere, even on a test site) and grab the data you need.

I just have to write and give a HUGE testimonial to Robert for the level of his support. I am one of the purchasers who wanted to copy my blog from one of the less than popular hosts to one of the more popular hosts. To make matter worse, my blog is quite complex. I encountered problem after problem each time I went to make my backup copy. I reported this via the support desk and almost immediately I began receiving support including updates of the software. It took several iterations before the problem was solved but Robert never stopped working to get it right for my site. The level of support has been stellar. So, Robert, I say “Thank You” once again for support that is platinum level.” Eddie Durham, InfiniteCashMachine.com
