Using BackupBuddy & Dropbox to backup your WordPress website

This post will show you how to configure your WordPress website’s backup so that:

  1. Your site is being backed up on a regular basis
  2. The backups files are automatically sent to an offsite location as well as to your own computer thus ensuring that if you ever need to restore your files they are available to you immediately.

This post assumes that you the have the WordPress plugin, BackupBuddy already installed.

BackupBuddy & Dropbox integration allows you to schedule backups to be automatically transferred to your Dropbox account, manually send backups to Dropbox, and even view, download, or delete backups that are stored on your account. You can even share your backup with someone else using Dropbox file sharing.

I have created two videos to help you setup ongoing backup that will be sent to your Dropbox account automatically.

If you do not have a Dropbox account, I recommend you Create your free Dropbox account now

I have created two short videos to demonstrate the process of setting it all up:
