Why Do Backups?

Probably the most sensitive part of any WordPress site is the database. Plugins can be added back, themes can be re-installed, but if your WordPress database gets hacked or is corrupted then you are in big trouble. The database is where all the irreplaceable stuff is kept. Your posts, your pages, your content, your comments, everything that makes up your WordPress site is in the database. <br><br>

*I can personally attest to the fact that loosing your WP database can be a disaster of monumental proportions.*  Mike S.

Using BackUP is really simple. 

After you’ve installed it, just click on the BackUP item in your WP Dashboard and the BackUP page will open.  You will find 3 tabs; Backups, Settings and Help.

Backups:

This will display a list of your current backups identified by a file name with date.  You can download these files to your local hard disk for added security.  From this tab you can also select a specific backup file to Restore to you WP site.

Settings:  Here you can select your automatic backup schedule such as Every Day, Every Week or Every Month.  You can also select to Manually Backup Only.

Please Don’t Delay.  BackUP makes backing up easy and you’ll sleep a lot sounder at night knowing that you can easily recover from a site disaster.
