WordPress is celebrating blog security and protection with WordPress Backup Week July 23-30.
WordPress, one of the most popular blogging and website management tools, is sponsoring WordPress Backup Week July 23-30. Step-by-step backup instructions will be available in the online manual, the WordPress Codex, and online in the WordPress Support Forum to help you through the process.
Having lived on and off for the past month with numerous computer crashes and bleeding my fingers and brain all over the place trying to stay online and working, I can appreciate this reminder from WordPress a LOT.
Your 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? 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 web site.
Backing up your WordPress database has never been easier with WordPress plugins which allow you control over how, what, and when you backup, even emailing your database backups to you – all pain free. Documentation is available to take you through the step-by-step process, as well, for backing up your WordPress site and database with cPanel, vDeck, DirectAdmin, Plesk, and others.
For your own protection and security, and peace of mind, join us in learning how to backup and protect our valuable data and writings during WordPress Backup Week. Consider using this Backup Week as an incentive to backup all your valuable documents and software, too.
If you care about your friends and you don’t want to see them suffer through the same agonies as I and you may have had, tell them about this. Help them learn from our pain and suffering. Remind them BACKING UP IS A GOOD THING.
Tell the world.
