So, you call yourself a web developer? You’ve played with PHP and MySQL for years, huh? How many times have you deleted a database? How many times did you recover from it successfully?
I would find it hard to believe any web developer hasn’t mistakenly DROP’d a database on accident. It happens to the best of us! The mark of a wise developer is to have backup. Easy, intuitive backup.
So, as it turns out, I deleted this site’s database a few weeks ago. Oops. Luckily, I had saved a backup using BackWPup, bringing me back up to speed relatively quickly and painlessly (I didn’t have automatic backups, and the backup I had was from two months prior).
To keep this short and simple, if you know your way around PHP, MySQL, and the WordPress installation, the free version of BackWPup is more than enough to cover all of your WordPress backup needs. The Pro version includes several more ways BackWPup can save and send files.
