Word press is easy, friendly user they have a built-in template that you can use to create a simple but elegant blog or e-commerce website. But if you want to access WordPress other features you need to install the different plugins and themes. After you install the plugins and themes, you always make sure their all version is up to date also your WordPress.
Spending a few time to make an easy and convenient backup of your database will let you spend even more time being creative and productive with your website.
Outdated themes, plugins and WordPress version are the number one way hacker gain access to your site. Even deactivated themes and plugins can leave your site vulnerable. But to safely update your WordPress plugins and themes you NEED to BACKUP your WordPress file to avoid the disaster of your websites.
Your WordPress database contains every link, every single post, every comment, and all input data you have on your site. If your database wipes out or corrupted, you stand to lose the whole thing you have written. There are many explanations why this could happen, and not all are things you can control. With a correct backup of your WordPress database and files, you can quickly restore your things back to normal as usual.
Website backups are essential because problems certainly occur anytime and you need to take action immediately when disaster attack. Spending a few time to make an easy and convenient backup of your database will let you spend even more time being creative and productive with your website.
Backup is always essential to the workplace or even in school. I remember my college day’s two weeks before the defense of our thesis one of my friends broke his laptop. He accidentally damaged the motherboard with his hard drive they realize their thesis system is on his laptop. Unfortunately, they don’t have the latest back up of their system that’s why they do not make it to the defense schedule. They need to re-enroll the subject to finish their thesis. Eventually, they graduated in the same year.
