In order to do this we look at three different ways of backing up your sites content and code.

Social Networking Minute: Back Up Your WordPress Baby

Too be on the same page, here are the three tools that I used today for backing up my site.

WordPress Export: This is a default backup WordPress has on all sites to export your content and pages.

WordPress Back Up By Blog Traffic Exchange (BTE): This is great for automated backups of all your WordPress content and tables. Everything gets emailed to you every day, week, and/or month.

WordPress Backup: Another WordPress plugin I use for automated WordPress backups to your site. You can also download the site if you want to have a file backup on your computer.  As you noticed in the video above, this process does take a few minutes, so make sure to have the screen open when you do the backup.

Having a back up for your WordPress blog can bring you a lot more peace of mind. Plus, all of the plugins discussed above are free, so you have no excuse now not to back up your wordpress site.
