Back your WordPress site up to Dropbox

Do you lie awake at night wondering what would happen if you lost your entire website?  What if a hacker or malicious virus caused your website to crash? Rather than waist unreasonable amounts of time and money, don’t you think you would be smarter to simply back up your website? Now I understand the issue with backing up a website, you always forget to do it… and before you know it you haven’t backed your site up in 5 months time. Luckily, there is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to back your site up automatically to a third party (Dropbox).

Now what is Dropbox? Watch the video below…

Dropbox is a perfect way to store files online, share files and more, plus it’s free! You can go ahead and sign up for your free account here https://www.dropbox.com/ and begin the backup process!

To take out some of the work out of backing up your site, we will show you how to set up a WordPress plugin that automatically backs your website up to your Dropbox account.  The easier and more hands off the process is, the better, right?

Note: Depending on the size of your website, or the number of files, it may be worth it to open a completely new Dropbox account for your website.

WordPress Backup to Dropbox saves you the hassle of using a FTP client and making a total backup of your WordPress site. The first backup will take some time to complete due to the size and number of files, but once the initial backup is done, each backup from then on will be an incremental backup. These backups can be scheduled at any desired frequency. Once you have configured your settings, your site is ready for automatic backups. Say good-bye to stress!
