How do I backup my sites database and files? I was going to leave WA so I transferred my site to another host but before my membership expired, I changed my mind and transferred it back. In the process I lost all my content even though I had a backup of my site using WP clone. How should I back up?

Also, how do i backup my database?

I use the UpdraftPlus plugin.

BTW - WA makes backups daily. You can ask Site Support to restore your site from backup.

Hey Dale,

WP Clone has been no longer used for quit some time now: Here's the plugin Carson recommended to me for one of my VERY large websites that WP Clone could NOT backup for me... and now, I use this plugin for ALL sites I tend.

WP Clone just got updated about a week ago, Trish. YAY!

Heeeeey, THAT is GOOD to know.
Pheeew... 'cause I really liked that plugin.
Thanks for the "heads up!"
Wonder if WP allowed them back inside again, as it was their announcement that made me replace the plugin.

It seems that the plugin was "abandoned" as it didn't get updated for 2 or 3 years. It was still working as before, without any updates, but the warning message put even me off. I removed it from all my sites but now it's back up and working as expected. It still can't back up large sites but it's quick and easy for the smaller sites.

Yes, it is PERFECT for smaller sites. Thanks again!
