backups are really important and you will regularly be asked by wordpress or any service you use with your wordpress blog everytime you install or update something on your server. this is very crucial specially if your blog is making you money.
until just today, I’ve learned from john chow’s How To Automatically Backup Your Entire WordPress Blog that backing up the entire database of your blog is not enough, there are other parts of the blog that should be backed up as well.
Automatic WordPress backup Plugin
Automatic WordPress Backup is the ultimate backup tool for WordPress. The plugin will back up your entire WordPress site and not just the database. Backups are stored on Amazon S3 for maximum flexibility and reliability. Other features include:
- Captures your ENTIRE site (WordPress database, themes, plugins, uploaded files and settings files), which means minimal downtime if you need to restore.
- Totally automated backup means you spend more time getting stuff done and less time fighting your tools.
- Minimal configuration. Set it and forget it.
- Manually trigger backups so you can have some peace of mind before you install a new plugin or a WordPress update.
