Maintaining your website or blog takes a lot of time and effort but what happens if you lose one day part of your information? Can you imagine yourself re-doing the content or scrape on Wayback Machine for indexed page records? Even after this there is no guarantee that you can get all files.
A backup of any WordPress database via FTP or SQL is recommended, but if you are not really sure about how to do backups or are intimidated by the ‘geeky stuff ” I recommend you to use the plugin BackupBreeze.
Obviously there are many more other plugins on the market, but I have tried other plugins but I did not get the same value. I want to do a Backup Breeze review and show you the advantages of using a backup plugin.
