Backup your WordPress Blogs with Dropbox
One of the most important aspects about running a blog is the content. Because without content, how useful is a blog?!? The answer – not very.
That is why it is crucial that you backup your data at a separate location. One of the best methods I have found for backing up your data is by using the Backup to Dropbox WordPress plugin.
If you have never heard of Dropbox, do not fear! It is a safe place to store any sort of files that you need:
“Dropbox allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronises so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of the computer it is viewed on. Files placed in this folder are also accessible through a web site and mobile phone applications.”
Here is a quick tutorial on how to get everything setup:
Step 1. If you don’t already have an account, you need to sign up at Dropbox. Click here to sign up at Dropbox
Step 2. Install and activate the plugin. Click here to download the plugin
Step 3. Authorize the plugin to connect with your Dropbox account.
