How To Back Up & Restore WordPress Sites
All your WordPress site’s important data is stored in a database on your web server. Your WordPress site’s installation files, web design templates, and other important files your site needs to run are also stored on your web server. If something were to happen to your website due to a corrupted process, plugin installation gone wrong, or worse, a malicious attack from malware or hackers, your online business could be down or even be completely wiped out unless you have recent backups stored somewhere safe and can restore these to your server.
You can pay someone to perform regular backups for you, but why spend hundreds of dollars every month and depend on others when you can just as easily learn how to set up and automate this process?
This video course will show you how to safely and automatically backup your WordPress files and database and how to easily restore your WordPress site if something unexpected or disastrous were to happen.
