Backup is the first layer of security for any wordpress site. Just imagine a situation, if your website get hack in future and you loose all the data then what you will do. You don’t have any option. But if you create a backup then at least you have one option to restore everything back. Here, I am going to show you how to backup wordpress site and restore with just a few easy steps.
The best way to take backup wordpress site is by installing a plugin. There are many wordpress plugins in the market to take backup but I personally recommend updraft plus wordpress backup plugin. Even, I am using the same plugin into my website and its doing a great job. Let’s have a look on how to configure this.
Make sure, your backup must be schedule according to how often you upload a post into your wordpress site. as for example if you add two blog post each week then you can schedule file backup as fortnightly and database backup as weekly.
Its time to choose your backup cloud server. This is the place where your backup file is going to save. You have multiple choices such as Microsoft One Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, Google Drive, etc. you can choose any one of these you like most. I personally recommend Google Drive as we are getting 15 GB of free cloud storage.
Enter your backup folder name and choose the components you want to take backup such as plugins, themes, uploads and click on save.
To verify your google drive, click on the link and select your google drive account and Allow.
Now your backup process will start in a few seconds and it will take few minutes to complete. The backup time depends on your website size and the bandwidth of your network.
Hurrrreyyy, its all done. You will find your backup file in your cloud storage. Mine is in Google Drive.
This is how you can take backup of your wordpress site. Now, the question is how to restore your data back from this backup. Do not worry guys, am going to show you that too. For restoring your data click restore, select the backup and click on restore.
