The kind folks at WordPress are organizing a backup week to encourage the practise of regularly backing up your WordPress blog. The press release from Lorelle is below :
Backing Up is Not Just for Cars
Your WordPress database contains every post, every comment and every link you have on your blog. If your database gets erased or corrupted, you stand to lose everything you have written. There are many reasons
why this could happen and not all are things you can control. But what you can do is backup your data. After all, it is important isn’t it?
WordPress Backup Week July 23-30 aims to help you become more familiar with the process of backing up and protecting your data.
Guides will be available to help you backup your WordPress site and database for a variety of systems and server software such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk and vDeck. Consider using this Backup Week as an incentive to backup all your valuable documents and software, too.
These guides will assist you in determining:
- When and how to make backups.
- How to make things right after an unexpected data loss befalls your
Making backups is essential because problems inevitably occur and you need to be in a position to take action when disaster strikes. Spending a few minutes to make an easy, convenient backup of your database will
allow you to spend even more time being creative and productive with your website.
