Full Backup Using WP Clone Plugin
There are a few popular backup plugins but they all have some drawbacks.
Updraft Plus does not work at Wealthy Affiliate because of the CRON settings.
BackWPup does not have a restore function. Backups can only be restored using the Premium plugin or FTP.
Duplicator’s restore function only works on a brand new site where WordPress has not been installed.
And WP Clone can create a lot of files on the server which could cause problems if they were allowed to build up.
My Recommendation: Use WP Clone as I show you in this video. Delete the older files as you create new ones. And, of course, deactivate the plugin when you’re not actually using it.
WordPress Tools Export backs up your posts, pages and comments. It doesn't back up your images, other media, plugins or themes.
WP Clone can back up the whole kit and caboodle. And restore it again if needed.
To be on the safe side I always use Tools Export as well as WP Clone. Yeah, I know, I'm a bit paranoid. I also like to keep at least 3 backups in 3 different places. And I don't always trust plugins until I've tested them thoroughly.
IMPORTANT: Always deactivate plugins that you only use occasionally as they can cause problems.
