I saw this post about backing up your WordPress blog to Dropbox earlier this month, but when it came time to update this site to the latest WP release, that was the first time I decided to take it for a ride.
Sure enough, I installed the wpTimeMachine plugin, and within a few minutes, I had a full backup of the blog safely stored over in my Dropbox account. I could then proceed with the WP update fully assured that I had a good backup in case something went wrong. It didn’t, but it’s nice to know I can get a new backup in just a matter of moments, or I can create a cron job to get one automatically at whatever time interval I want, and that it will be stored in a separate location than my site.
Nicely done.Tags: Plugin, Wordpress
