Backing up your WordPress site is an important step for your site’s safety. There are multiple methods for creating a backup but in this video we will go over how to use BackupBuddy.

Start by going to the BackupBuddy site and purchasing BackupBuddy for your site.

After purchasing BackupBuddy you would want to log in to your site if you have not already. Under Plugins, Add New you will be able to click the upload button at the top of the page to upload the .zip file from BackupBuddy.

Once installed, under BackupBuddy, Backup you will want to set up your preferred settings for backing your site up and where you would like the backup files to be placed.

    The tutorial is good, but I'd like to see one using one of the free plugins.

    I use two backup methods (in case one backup fails or is somehow corrupted). Personally, though, I find it almost as easy to do a partial cpanel backup and download the home directory files and the database. If there are multiple problems with the WordPress site, the cpanel restore can get around just about anything (problem logging in, corrupt database, etc.)

    I understand that this plugin has a lot of different features, but it is way to expensive. UpdraftPlus backs up the whole site for free. It doesn't offer as many options, but you get the basics like cloud backup and automatic backup. Also, it comes with easy restores.

    It appears that the WordPress plugins for backup are designed to backup a WordPress site that has been installed in the root directory: /var/www/html/ but what if you installed WordPress in a separate directory, such as /var/www/html/blog instead? I have not found a WP plugin that allows me to back up my WP site in the latter case. Can you tell me if there is one that does or how I can adjust this? Thanks.
