Socialmouths.com posted this list of great tips for how to keep your WordPress blog safeBuy Furosemide from such internet hazards as data corruption, malicious hackers, and the dreaded “oops I deleted it” error.
Go read them all, but here are a couple of really clever ones:
Automatic Database Backup
Here’s how you can have your WordPress blog’s database emailed to you on a regular basis. (Most people’s blog databases only take up a few megabytes.)
There are a few Wordpress Plugins that can perform a remote backup of your entire database.
The one I’ve been using for a while is called Remote Database Backup, it’s very easy to configure and it gives you very few options to worry about. You can manually run a backup at any moment and drop it in your hard drive or you can schedule hourly, daily or weekly backups to be delivered via email as you can see in the following image.
Set it up and forget about it! Even better, if you have an additional email account to manage your subscriptions and other services, have your backups go to that address, you don’t need to be looking at this stuff every day.
Automatic File Backups to Dropbox
You’ll need a (free) Dropbox account for this one. If you haven’t used Dropbox before, then you’re in for a treat. The service allows you to sync a few gigabytes for free (or hundreds with a paid account) across as many computers as you want.
Now there’s a WordPress plugin that lets you automatically backup the files that your website is made of to Dropbox.
Step 1: Install the Plugin WordPress Backup to Dropbox and activate
Step 2: Click “Authorize” to be redirected to your Dropbox account
Step 3: Allow. That’s it.
