BackWPup is a useful, easy-to-use and set-up plugin for backing-up both your WordPress file and database, as well as clean and optimize your database. WPNuggets.com
Overall, it’s a pretty solid all-purpose backup and DB optimisation plugin, and the excellent control over cron jobs it gives a webmaster access to is unmatchable – for example, you can configure it to use your server’s cron utility instead of default WP cron. LinuxForU.com
Can I use BackWPup Pro in a multi-site installation?
Yes. Logged in as administrator you will find the plugin in your network administration.
How often should I back up?
Rule of thumb: The more active your site is the more frequently you should create backups.
Keep in mind WordPress stores most data (posts, pages, comments) in the database and only attachments are stored on the file system. We recommend to backup the database more frequently than the file system.
Why should I do backups?
For the same reason you back up your documents on your computer, a WordPress installation should be protected regularly. Before installing an update you really should save your data! If something were to go wrong, then the saved file can be reloaded and reinstate the saved configuration to the previously working state. It saves you much work, time and money.
Where is the backup data stored?
BackWPup Pro offers various options. You can send it via email, store it on the server or in the cloud. By different sheduled jobs, backups can be saved daily on a server and weekly via email, to share the data and make it more save.
You can install BackWPup Pro automatically or manually with an FTP program.
