Site Owners And Webhosts, How Do You Backup? by DualCore1: 4:56pm On Aug 12, 2016
The need for backups can be over emphasized. So let's share ideas on how you as an end user or as a webhost treat your backups.

P.S: No bashing, no need to call out any webhost as a result of any experience, no adverts too. Just ideas to help us all.

Good idea dualcore1

While I bashed a webhost on the other thread the saving grace for my friend was that I did a wordpress export of all his contents some months ago so he lost a few months data.

Paid for another host immediately and pointed the dns to the new host although the I have transferred the domain to his new host now.

Back to the topic newbies can do the following backup.

1. Wp-caption export of all contents: This does not export the pictures and images unfortunately

2. Do a complete backup via your cpanel and download the file to your computer.

3. You can aso use the cpanel to backup and point the download folder to preferred location and set the backup to run at intervals . Once a week should be ok for frequent posters and once a month otherwise.

I use whogohost and my site is still fine. I think one of d best is to maintain attitude of backing up database and web files to ur computer like weekly or two weeks. may be nothing is 100% efficient. I av a friend DAT uses foreign host, yet it crashed his site days ago. he had to start from d beginning. #WhogohostRocks

Still a newbie, still doing more research. Never use foreign hosts under EIG, Endurance International Group. They buy hosting companies to wreck it...

I just quickly backup my db right now. I will backup my web files asap. I use wordpress for my website @ http://NaijaTech.com.ng
I use this plugin "WP-DBManager" to backup my database to one of my web files, then I copy it into my computer via filezilla.

Webfiles don't change often compared to database that changes once you create new content.
