About This Class

Do you have a backup of your website?

If you are a WordPress user, you may add a lot of fresh content every day.

It can be pages and posts as well as uploaded pictures that you assign to these posts.

After a while, you will end up with thousand of lines of valuable content.

What happens when your web server breaks down, or your web host goes out of business? Do you have a backup of all this content that you can just copy to a fresh WordPress installation?

Wouldn't it be great, if your WordPress site would just backup all your content, the theme, and the plugins that you are using on a regular basis?

I will show you in this class, how you can install a free plugin and configure it to do regular backups on a schedule, for example, daily or weekly. It will also send you backup files to a cloud storage like dropbox, so you will have access to your files, even when the hosting company will disappear completely.
