WordPress Tutorial: How to Backup with WP Complete Backup [VIDEO]

Read time: minutes

Backing up your WordPress website is one of the most critical, and often overlooked steps. In a self-hosting situation, it is not uncommon for hosts to keep backups of the FILES, but very rarely do they automatically keep a backup of your WordPress database. And as important as the files are…the database is CRITICAL. The files and the database, together, makeup your unique WordPress website. Every website owner should have several off-server and offsite backups of their WordPress website (files and database), just in case. (If we host your website, we take a copy of the files and database everyday and store them off-server and offsite, so you don’t need this video.)

In this WordPress Tutorial, you’ll learn how to:

  • Register your copy of WP Complete Backup
  • Take a backup copy
  • Download the copy to your computer for storage
  • Delete the copy to save disk space on your server

Backing up your website will give you options in the event that something bad happens to your website. With a good backup, you can restore the site to a previous time. Without, your only hope is to try to piece together your website. Taking a backup is quick and easy — give yourself that peace of mind.
