Easy WordPress Backups with the Backup WP Plugin
Hello and welcome to the guide to the Backup WP WordPress plugin, which is a great way to create automated backups of your WordPress website. There is also a restore functionality with added Dropbox integration.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) On the Dashboard of your website, scroll down the left-hand sidebar and click on Plugins
Step 3) From the Installed Plugins page, click on Add New at the top of the page. Alternatively, click on Add New from the dropdown menu under Plugins on the sidebar.
Step 4) On the Add Plugins page, type in the name of your plugin in the search box on the right hand side, at the top of the page.
Step 5) From the Search Results page, scroll down to your chosen plugin and click the button marked Install Now. If you would like to learn more about your plugin, click the blue link marked More Details
Step 9) To start your Manual Backup, simply click on the blue button marked Backup. This will start the backup, and you can follow its progress on the % meter shown below.
Step 11) When you want to check your Backup History, or to Restore from a backup, head to the section shown below and use the Browse button to find your backup file to restore from. You can also download your latest backup from this page.
Step 12) On the Schedule section, you will be asked where you would like to save your Backup, between Local, FTP and Dropbox. Unfortunately you can only schedule your Backups if you have the Pro version of the plugin.
