Back up your posts, pages, and website


It is not a matter if IF something will happen, but  WHEN.  While a lot of things have automatic backups, it’s a good idea to back them up yourself too.  Do you really want to depend on something to auto-save… after you put in hours of work?  

What if there is a freak power outage or something crashes?  You will save yourself a lot of time and frustration if you back up your posts, pages and website regularly.

Wouldn’t it be better to take the time BEFORE it happens to save and back up your work?

You are putting a lot of time and effort into writing, and building a site, back them up regularly so you don’t lose all that hard work.




While WordPress does auto-save, I always make sure I update my work as I go.

A fluke power outage or crash has happened and probably will again. I ‘ve learned the hard way, losing my stuff and having to re-write the whole thing again.

I make it a habit to UPDATE my pages and posts as I write them.

If something happens, you can go back in and find a REVISION and bring it back.

You can choose to compare revisions, move the slide bar back in increments, and use the next and previous buttons to find the revision you want to restore. You can also compare revisions. 

UPDATE often . . . . .




You should back up your site:

  • On a schedule, at least once a week 
  • Before you add or delete a plugin
  • Before you add or delete a theme
  • Whenever you do a lot of changes on your site

You are  putting a lot of time and effort into your site, you want to make sure you don’t lose it.

Like saving and backing up your pages and posts, you should take the time to save and back up your website regularly.
