How do you backup your wordpress sites? What do you think is the most reliable method for doing this ? Thanks.

  • Use Backupbuddy

    ^-^!

    Dump the db outside of the www folder, then rsync/ftp/mail it and the files in your www folder to another location.

    zip/tar before transfer.

    Get a LES NAT VPS! (or 10) in United States (3), Germany, Bulgaria, France, Norway, Australia (2), Singapore. | -> 500gb NAT Storage
  • I prefer updraftplus.

  • https://wordpress.org/plugins/dreamobjects/

    DreamObjects backup plugin has worked well. $0.025/GB but they only bill you once you hit $5.50 in total billings - so if you're just backing up WP sites it'll probably take you a few years before you see a charge.

    Personally, I'd go with VaultPress for WordPress. You have good choices here as well.

    For me, using a backup plugin is the worst method when you are using unmanaged VPS. You need to build a web server, configuring vHost, install basic wordpress and add the related-backup-plugin into your WP before you can restore it.

    And again, for me, the best method for backup a wordpress is zipping the whole WP { file + DB dump + vHost config (and SSL cert) } and then send this zip file to cloud storage (DropBox, GDrive, etc). You may want to create a script and schedulling it via cron.

    no you don't need to setup a fresh wordpress to restore the backup (backupbuddy): you need only the gzip + one .php file and it restore everything.

    Ah...you can try it for 30 days, or sign up for a prepaid. I don't see where you can store for free until you hit $5.50...?

    I think you have to deposit something to start. Which is not a negative, just saying...

    Just tar up your wordpress directory and dump your database (or use automysqlbackup to do daily, weekly, and monthly automatic mysql database backups)

    I prefer old style for WP unless something different is necessary. I avoid WP Plugins on a VPS for backup because you add a good amount of useless php that has to be executed only 1 time every day. Here are my favourite actions unless i need something more specific:

    • Configure and secure a small Storage VPS for SFTP (CentOS7)
    • Put a small script for Monitoring on VPS
    • Put a Script on client for all sites that tar.gz main folders, backup mariadb (gz) and sftp to destination (you find hundred sftp scripts on GITHUB)
    • Do a Cron Job on Client
    • GGWP

    Any suggestion on scripts ? I am currently backing it up manually using filezilla and phpmyadmin. It would be very nice to automate the process. Is there any step by step tutorial ? Thanks.

    bash script. not a rocket science. automated too.

    And also, I use version control for backup. E.g. git. I find it useful. Because one time I got infected or something, and I am able to choose which point in time I want to restore from.

    I didn't have to deposit anything, just had to add a credit card and they validate it. If you have a Dreamhost account already, in the billing section you can see the Compute/Storage stuff and just start creating buckets.

    It's not really something they advertise ($5.50 min payment), but I've had an account for a year now, here's my billing email for this month:

  • Updraftplus - I like the option to create a separate rackspace container with it's own credentials for each site.

  • The tech-savvy person may back up their sites manually. But, for me, being a non-technical person, I have to back up my WordPress site with a backup plugin. The most reliable method to me is to create backups with the most reliable backup plugin. So, I have tried many free WordPress plugins. At last, Updraftplus and WPvivid Backup/Restore meet my requirement, because they both cover the backup and restore features in their free version. Apart from one-click restore, the free version of both plugins support to create manual and scheduled backups and upload to cloud storage and more. They both works great on my site. With two millions active installations, Updraftplus is my final choice. However, WPvivid Backup/Restore works very well as a new plugin. In my opinion, it is very promising plugin and worth a try.

    All-in-One WP Migration and UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup are really good plugins. Try one of them for backup.

  • OP you didn't mention whether you are using shared hosting or a VPS/Dedi because backup method depends on the kind of hosting you are using.

  • Interesting topic. I use updraftplus and some manual SFTP, but will bookmark this page for future reference.

  • I hope OP has found a solution. This is from near 2 years ago.

  • install openlitespeed + php in a vps and get a code for remote URL upload to server from stackexchange

    in your WordPress host cpanel archive the home folder and make that archive downloadable my moving to some domains directory and then remote upload that zip file to another host by link and backup db

    in vps idk but backup the MySQL dump by putty and zip the WordPress folder and do the same

  • If you have plenty of resources (particularly I/O and RAM), then the UpdraftPlus plugin is a really good choice.
    Alternatively, if you use Softaculous, you can import your WordPress installations there (assuming you haven't installed them through it), and then, configure remote backups to Google Drive. It takes care of both, files and DBs. This also is a very reliable approach.

    For wordpress backup, you can use tools like All in one wordpress migration or duplicator pro. They are really powerful. You have your files, plugins, database saved. And you can upload your backup directly to another web server or to your drive (google, onedrive etc...)
