Backing Up Your WordPress Blog

Backing Up Your WordPress Blog

By John Jantsch

As you certainly have learned from any time spent reading this blog, I’m a big fan of the WordPress blogging software.

Backup BuddyThere are lot of plugins that I would call standard for a business blog, but one aspect that doesn’t get enough coverage in my opinion is backup – the act of saving a copy of your WordPress files and database. Just like any business asset this is one you must protect.

While some web hosting services offer this as an option, I use a plugin called BackUp Buddy. BackupBuddy is an all-in-one solution for backups, restoration, and migration. It backs up the SQL database, plugins, files, themes, scripts, and everything else in the WordPress database and directories.

The tool allows me to schedule routine backups and have the files sent to my Amazon S3 storage. You can also have the file sent to you via email of download via FTP. If you ever want to move to a new host or change your URL, this will be a life saver.

No matter what solution you choose, please make sure you address this one with something. You don’t want to lose all the hard work.
