Latest News: Updated the version information.
It is very important to backup your website daily if it is a very popular website or regularly like once a week. There are many ways for you to create a backup. For some it is easier to use a plugin because they might not have access to their server. For others they might prefer to use the server to manage their backups.
The following list of plugins will help you create, manage and transfer your backups from one server to another server and more. The list is numbered pointing to my preferred choices from 1 being the first choice.
- UpdraftPlus Backup and Restoration
- All In One WP Migration
- WP Staging
Information: Always remember to try and not have too many plugins added to your website or blog. The more plugins you add the more request and processing resources it requires to use from your server!!!
