Backing up your WordPress site is one of those essential things that don’t get spoken about nearly as often as they should. We’ve already reviewed the best WordPress online backup tool, BackupBuddy, and today we are going to talk about another tool which allows you to backup your site to your local computer. This piece of software is Backup Smart. We actually use both BackupBuddy and Backup-Smart concurrently on our sites, in order to have two backups at two separate locations and better peace of mind.
Here’s an introduction to Backup Smart from the creator himself:
All you need to do is enter the login details of your site, and schedule your backups. Then Backup Smart will automatically login to your site’s CPanel and start downloading a copy of all your files and databases. It’s a really useful tool that can be essential for cases when a hacker has attacked your site and destroyed some files, or some hosting mishap in which you lose your site’s files.
