In this Tech Tutorial I’m going to walk through step by step how to backup a WordPress website to a free dropbox account using the WordPress plugin BackWPup.
The key to a successful backup strategy is consistency and not relying on any single backup option, we want to make backups part of our regular WordPress Website Maintenance routine.
We’re going to cover:
WordPress Structure – The files and database that make up a WordPress website
How to install the BackWPup WordPress backup plugin
Go through all the BackWPup settings and what they do.
Create a scheduled weekly backup job and link it to a free dropbox account.
Finally we’re going to run a backup job and also download it to our computer so we have 2 copies of the backup.
