Your WordPress database contains every post, every comment and every link you have on your blog and if your database gets erased or corrupted, you may lose everything you have written. This may happen for many different reasons and they could be things you can’t control. That’s why it’s good to have a proper backup of your WordPress database and files, that will enable you to quickly restore things back to normal.
There are many Backup plugins in WordPress that can help you keep your data safe. As for me, I’d highly recommend you the Backup Guard plugin. All I can say is it’s the most complete back up choice for WordPress. They offer the easiest way to backup and restore your WordPress based website or blog. With this plugin you can backup your files, database or both.
eLet me introduce you some cool features of this amazing plugin. You can create as many backups as you want, there is no limit. You can create backups of your database or your files, or both. Restore any backup file whenever needed. You may download your backup files for migration if needed. You can also upload your backup file and restore it right away. In case you change your mind you can cancel the backup process while it is not finished yet. You can delete backups, view backup or restore log. Choose which folders you want to backup. You have a great opportunity to precise progress of the current backup and restore process. These features I selected, were the features of the Free version.
And here are the Pro version features. You can upload your backup file directly to FTP or upload your backup file directly to Dropbox. You can even upload your backup file directly to Google Drive. One more exciting thing is that you can set the frequency and time to perform automatic backup. You can change the background mode of your backup to perform it in low priority mode.
You’ll have email notifications and get notified when a backup or restore gets finished. And, very important is that they provide a great support up to 24 hours!
I think, these various cool features will not only keep your data safe from any disastrous situations concerning the loss of your data, but also let you control all the actions happening to your data.
