Backup WordPress Database
It might seem tedious to backup WordPress site and to spend those few minutes clicking a button for something that you might never use in the future. But even if you’re backing up a site every day or even every single week and you never need to use that backup, it’s still a good thing to know that if you need to use it, if the worst thing happened, you could always get it back.
We hope that you have heard of the concept of backing your website files or even your WordPress site. It’s something that everyone needs to do but so few people do it. Even though it might seem like a waste of time right now it’s only a waste of time if nothing goes wrong.
You need to backup your WordPress site because it’s better safe than sorry, because you might get hacked and because you might need some of the old files or even to get back a lost plugin or theme.
The next thing that might happen is that you might get hacked and if you’ve ever had spyware or a virus on your computer, you might know that it’s a real pain to try to remove that virus from your computer.
A much easier thing to do if you ever get spyware or a virus or a hacker on your WordPress blog is to just delete everything and start over. Now if you had a backup you could just remove the whole account, put it up somewhere else and restore your old WordPress Website.
Even if you knew how that person got in it, you can still restore your website and have it up and running in just a few minutes, but now you don’t have to spend days or weeks trying to fix it. Just delete it and put up the fresh, copy of WordPress that was already there.
When you keep a weekly backup your chances of losing files are very, very low because you don’t have to worry about where things are stored or organized. Just go back to where you saved that file, restore the backup to the web.
Sometimes, don’t you wish you had the very first website, articles and videos you ever created? Most people don’t have them, most people at some point have let that website, or those articles, go. Now maybe at some point you accidentally deleted an article, deleted a video, deleted a graphic and you wanted to get back at it. We’ve all been there, we’ve all lost files.
That’s why it’s so important to backup your WordPress database and files because you’re better safe than sorry, you might get hacked and it’s important to have that old file for historical and restore purposes. Use this plugin right now and backup your WordPress site before it’s too late.
