Backing up and Moving WordPress Sites

Last Update: June 03, 2011

A recurring question asked here is about damaged sites and needing to move WordPress sites to a different hosting company. Rather than continue to answer the same questions over and over in the forum, I made a video demonstrating how to use the free BackWPup plugin. How to do backups and how it can be used to move a site to a different host.

I tried to upload the video as a tutorial resource to WA, but the upload just wouldn't go through. Let it run all night on a file that should have taken about two minutes to upload. I know I can upload because I upload it to my WordPress site with no trouble. In any case you can view the video at my WebWrights site.
