How I Use The Plugin BackUpWordPress
As a website developer primarily using WordPress these days, I often get asked what plugins I use on a regular basis. Well, recently, I have been really concerned about backups and problems with security and WordPress issues. I had my first client get hacked since 2008, I’ve seen sites go down for bad WordPress installs, bad updates, bad server settings and more. It all seems like it’s been culminating as of late and makes me more nervous than usual.
So, in comes a solution for backing up. BackUpWordPress is a plugin I’ve recently been introduced to and I really like it’s usefulness and simplicity. It simply does the job I would normally have to do manually by logging into my host and also backing up my site via FTP. I primarily use this plugin manually, but you can set it up to do backups automatically on a regular basis.
