WordPress Database Backup

November 18th, 2010

Backing up your database is important for many reasons, including security. If your database gets damaged or hacked, having a back-up on hand will make it much easier to quickly get your site back online. If you are a database or MySQL wiz you probably have a preferred method for database back-ups. Other tech savvy folks may want to follow the instructions in the WordPress Codex and back-up via cPanel or phpMyAdmin.

If the above ideas sound daunting, there are many plug-ins that will take care of this for you. WordPress Database Backup has a pretty good reputation and is very easy to set-up. It also allows you to schedule your periodic back-ups and to choose whether they should be saved to the server, to your computer or sent to you via e-mail.
