How do I create automatic backups for my WordPress website?

Regular backups protect you from unwanted data loss. For this reason, updates and more complex adjustments should never be done without a previous backup.

At Hostpoint, you have several options for setting up automated backups.

Using plug-ins

BackWPup is probably one of the best known backup plug-ins for WordPress.
The plug-in can be downloaded at https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/backwpup.

With BackWPup, backups can be stored not only on the server, but also in the cloud. Connections for Dropbox, Microsoft Azure or Google Drive are already integrated.

By cronjob

Of course, you can also secure your websites with an automated Cronjob.
To do so, you'll need a script which is executed at recurring times.

Further information on how to set up cronjobs can be found here: Setting up cronjobs
