I read a guest post by R. Kumar at DailyBlogTips entitled “Why and How To Backup Your Blog” where the post shares the importance of a backup and how to do it. It’s pretty interesting and I consider it’s a reminder for myself as I am too lazy to backup my blog.
At first, I feel that backup the blog is not so important and we only have to do it when it’s emergency or during transferring blogs to other webhosting providers. But I think I got it wrong. Backup your blog is more important – maybe more that what you expect.
The writer shares his experience of facing trouble when his site had been hacked and had to start again as it is a new one, and that is how he realized the importance of backup the blog. I also have experience when one of my blogs had been hacked, but fortunately the posts are successfully restored however I didn’t realize about backup my blog until I read the guest post.
R. Kumar also shares 3 ways to backup your blog which are:
- Backup from CPanel
- WordPress Database Backup (plugin) >> Details
- WordPress Online Automated Backup (plugin) >> Details
You can read more details about these ways here at the original article.
Yeah, now I realize the importance of backup my blog although it seems that I went through the articles talking on same matters a few times before this. Maybe it’s about the time to realize.
My word is – backup your blog frequently and start to act now before it’s too late.
