How To Backup A WordPress Website Offsite And Automated – 🚨 USING A FREE PLUGIN 🚨


How To Backup A WordPress Website
More info:

The most important thing you can do right now is MAKE sure you have a viable backup solution in place for all of your WordPress based websites.

There is no excuse not to! Its free, painless, takes all of 5 minutes to set it up.

You can’t rely on your web host, no matter how good they are. You can’t count on your we developer no matter how much you pay them.

You need to make sure for your own sake, that you have offsite backups that you have access to in case you website gets hacked, or your host has a hardware failure.

  1. You can get an extra 500 megs of storage, for your free account, with my link here

  2. THANK you for the great WordPress help. Question>> UpDraft takes a very long time to save my site considering my slow Internet connection. I also have the plugin "All in One Migration" installed. This plugin is must faster, however I wanted to ask if these two plugins basically do the same thing (save a backup of my site)? Can you please offer your comments>

  3. I installed the plugin on two of my websites. Now there is one folder in Google Drive with all the backups of two websites. How do I change the driveprofile, on one of the websites so I can save one Website on each Drive-profil??

  4. To move the whole website with database to another host, we download the buttons (db, plugins, themes, uplds, others) and upload them to the new host? Or is there a download all website backup button somewhere?

  5. I new to all this. And like in Eminem song. I am tearing my hair out to make some thing work. Belive me solving rubiks cube blindfolded is much easyer

  6. Hi Adam, Thanks for the very useful video. I've just built my first two WordPress websites and have been on YouTube a lot for help. You are by far the best presenter among the people showing others how to do stuff on WordPress.

  7. Adam – thank you for sharing this. I have had similar experiences to you [backupbuddy] but not found a reliable solution – I trust you and take on board your recommendation for Updraft – installing right now!

  8. Is this back up strategy still relevant?? Are you about to update this video? I just added it to my website so I'm curious.

  9. Hello Adam,

    Would it be possible for you to tell me how to backup ten or more WordPress websites please?

    Thank you, Robert.

  10. Hey Adam,

    I was curious if you knew of a way to backup the website into your Hard drive directly? Is there a way that you've heard about how to do this?

  11. WHy does updraft not work for me? I try to use it and it just loads and loads and loads for hours. It can never complete a single backup

  12. I have installed Updraftplus and it is incompitable with m theme. I activated the default wordpress theme and done all the settings and activated the theme again. will the updraftplus will work in the background?

  13. Adam, Super Huge fan here. 🙂 Important question. My webhost shut down my server today. Luckily, I was gonna migrate to Cloudways tomorrow and I bought this video long ago from you. So I have Updraft. My question is- does the Updraft restore still work on a new server ip?" Very Best Regards, Nate
