BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP

WordPress is celebrating blog security and protection with a WordPress Backup Week July 23-30.

WordPress, one of the most popular blogging and website management tools, is sponsoring a WordPress Backup Week July 23-30. Step-by-step backup instructions will be available in the online manual, the WordPress Codex, and online in the WordPress Support Forum to help you through the process.

Guides will be available to help you backup your WordPress site and database for a variety of systems and server software such as cPanel, vDeck, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Consider using this Backup Week as an incentive to backup all your valuable documents and software, too.

These guides will assist you in determining when and how to make backups and most importantly, how to make things right after an unexpected data loss befalls your WordPress database. Making backups is essential because problems inevitably occur and you need to be in a position to take action when disaster strikes. Spending a few minutes to make an easy, convenient backup of your database will allow you to spend even more time being creative and productive with your web site.

For your own protection and security, and peace of mind, join us in learning how to backup and protect our valuable data and writings during WordPress Backup Week.

Backing up - not just for cars

Step-by-step backup instructions will be available in the online manual, the WordPress Codex, and online in the WordPress Support Forum to help you through the process.

Guides will be available to help you backup your WordPress site and database for a variety of systems and server software such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk and vDeck. Consider using this Backup Week as an incentive to backup all your valuable documents and software, too.
