Just like it is important to backup your personal computer and files, it is important to have backups of your website in case you need to need to undo changes to your site or if the site goes down or is hacked.
The good news is that the site is automatically backed up to the web server every Sunday night. You will want to download a copy of the most recent backup from time to time though to have an extra copy in case something ever happens to the entire server.
To download a backup of the site to your computer to archive, simply click the BackWPup button in the backend. Hover over any file and a ‘Download’ link should appear.
Click that link and the file will download to your computer. Keep these saved in a secured folder on your computer.
