In this video, you can learn, How to take a Backup of your site. And how to use the backup, when required.

While creating websites is great, it is also important to take backups very seriously. Though we never expect, something bad to happen to our websites, we always need to be prepared for the worst-case scenario.

By taking a backup, you can keep copies of your website, which will help you when something goes wrong.

In this video, we’ll take a look at how to create backups of our website easily.

To do this we would be needing an easy to use a plugin known as the Updraft Plus WordPress Backup Plugin.

Step 1: Installing the Backup Plugin

Click on plugins from your WordPress dashboard, and then click on add new. Search for “Updraft”, and you’ll find a couple of results.
Install the one named “Updraft Plus WordPress Backup Plugin” and then activate it.

Step 2: Taking a Backup

Go to Updraft from the settings part of the WordPress dashboard. From the current status tab, click on backup now. Tick all the boxes and then create the backup.
To see the backup just created, click the existing backup tab, and you’d see it there.

So how do we use our backups?

To test it, let’s delete something. Go to pages and delete any page. After deleting, visit the page to ensure that the home page has no content.

Let’s now restore our backups. Go to Updraft from settings in the WordPress dashboard. From the current status tab, click on restore, tick all the boxes and confirm the restore.

Now you can return to the home page, and everything should be back to normal.

Step 3: Setting Up Automatic Backup
Up next, we would create an automatic backup which would ensure that backups are taken without our supervision.

Click on Settings on your WordPress dashboard and then click on Updraft. Go to the settings tab.

You’ll see File backup and Database backup schedules, it is advisable to set both to weekly. And then set the “retain this many schedule backups” drop-down to four times.

With this, the backups are created weekly and you’ll always have the website backups from the last four weeks.

Next, we’ll choose the remote storage location for our backups. There are many options for storing our backups, however, Google Drive seems to be a great option. Select Google Drive and click “Save” which can be found at the bottom of the page.

You’ll be prompted to sign in to your Google account, and then give access for the plugin to be used. After all the necessary processes, everything is all set and done.

How about cases when the whole site crashes, maybe due to a plugin or theme install? Such that we do not have access to our dashboard.

Three things would be done:

1. Remove the old installation of WordPress from your domain provider.
2. Install WordPress again on your domain.
3. Restore the backup.

The first and second steps vary according to domain provider, however number three goes across the board.
For the third step, after the fresh WordPress install; install the Updraft Plus WordPress Backup Plugin again.

On checking existing backups, nothing would be found. So under the current status tab, click on Google Drive and then follow the prompt to provide the needed access.
After checking existing backups, however, click “rescan remote storage” and the backup would be displayed.
Click on the backup, tick all the boxes and restore the backup. Now the website should be up and running.

There you have it, your WordPress website would always be safe as long as you have it backed up regularly.
