A new Wordpress x.y.z. Is out!

Before upgrading our WordPress version (2), it is good to make a backup first (1)

How do we do that?



Make a backup

To do so we install the BackWPup plugin.


Go to your WP Dashboard > plugin(1) >add new (2) > And search for backwpup (3)

Install and activate the plugin (4).

And once done, go to BackWPup (5) in your WP dashboard.


The menu of the BackWPup looks like this:


First we will add a new job (1)

Then we will run the job (2)

Good job... !

best is to have 3 backup jobs running
1,2,3

And to overwrite them later
4 = 1
5 = 2
6 = 3

Why 3?
Most of the time before upgrade and after
And later new job...
Safe

Have great week

Ty for telling me Jeff
Have a great weekend!

You can also go to your wp dashboard>tools>export
and save to your drive. It is however, not a complete backup.
Without plugin, you can only do that with ftp (direct access)

This training is great. It is the best backup for me so far. I have tried others and were not able to save the file. So this is well appreciated as it's done successfully.

The All in One WP Migration is also a good backup plugin that supports the latest 4.9.4 version of WordPress.
