On this episode we will be focusing on tools and techniques to backing up a WordPress installation and how to backup before a major upgrade.

Backups are really important, and everyone should backup their sites.

It doesn’t matter what platform you’re using, you need to be checking your restores every now and then to make sure that in the event of a site crash, your backups will work. Make sure your backup is going to a separate server and NOT on the same server your site is on.

How often should you backup?

  • It really depends on the site and how your site changes.
  • It’s content dependent. If you have a site that puts out content all day, your would do well to back up several times a day.
  • Many sites back up nightly.
  • If you’re in e-commerce and having a lot of customer transactions in a day, you need to back up multiple times a day.
  • Back up every time you make any change whether it’s upgrading WordPress, a plugin, activating a plugin, updating a theme, anything.

Ways to test your backup/restore:

Restore it locally on a desktop server – DesktopServer is built for just about anyone. It’s a single solution you install on your computer. It creates an entire environment for a WordPress site.

On Migration:

If you pick a host, and your site fails, having a backup is important so you can migrate to another server.  The same infrastructure can be used to get you to a different server/solution/company. Some hosts will do the migration for you if you give them a good backup

  1. Great episode! really points out that backup is not necessarily easy. Which is one reason many do not do it. And that any site is only as good as the host! Great show. Thank you!

  4. Kulitnya putih bersih, dengan betis yang woow, berambut menantang pastilah perempuan menawan ini punya nafsu seksual yang liar, itu kata temanku yang pengalaman seksnya tinggi Buah
    dadanya terlihat menyembul dari balik gaun tidur itu, apalagi dikala dia melangkah di sampingku, samar-samar dari sudut mataku kelihatan menawan payudaranya yang putih lembut

    “Uh , apa ini gara-gara film itu?”, batinku lagi

    Pikir bos aon338 mulai kurang didik, atau selama ini saya memperhatikan cs senantiasa menggunakan kutang seksi dan berhijab jadi saya tak tahu
    wujud tubuhnya yang sesungguhnya, lantas saya memasukkan bayang-bayang ke dalam adegan film
    tadi

    “Hmm ”, tidak sadar mulutku mengeluarkan bunyi itu
    “Ada apa, Di?”, isteri bos aon338 itu memandangku dengan alis berkerut

    “Eh , kau ngelamun yah, ngelamunin siapa sih?
    cs yang seksi?”, tanyanya
    memperhatikan cs seksi dada bos dan leader aon338 berdesir sesaat pandangan mataku tertuju pada belahan dadanya
