Hello Wealthy Affiliate Family!

I have forgotten how to back up my website files as I have not done it for over a year. Shame on me!. If not too much to ask, can someone give me an instruction on how to do it? I noticed not too long ago I need to update my WordPress.

Thank you so much in advance!

Always grateful for your help and stay well all!

Cheers,

Evelyn

Hi Evelyn... I use a plugin called Updraft Plus.

Me too, Richard. 😊

Thank you, Richard, but I don't remember using a plug-in before. I thought it was right down below under settings in the WordPress dashboard??

Evelyn

Hi, Sophie

You may have used "Export" in WordPress to backup your website, which does not require a separate plugin.

Frank

Yes, I just did and used Export. Saved the backup files on my hard drive.

Thank you, Frank.

That's great Evelyn... In that case you need to be backing up you PC too.

Here is one link for you:

Thank you so much Joe! The link you sent me is more like it, that you can do it right within WordPress. That's how I have been doing it. As it has been a long time since I made a backup of my website files, I couldn't figure it out anymore. My brain was overloaded with things.

Thank you soooo much!

Evelyn

You're quite welcome :)

I just backed up my files. Thanks again!
