CMS & WordPress
Notice: This is a discussion thread for comments about the SitePoint article, Keep Your Blog Safe: Back Up Your WordPress Installation.
you can automate most of these steps by using wpSimpleBackup plugin for WordPress. It also provides an easy and quick way to restore and migrate the blog.
I wouldn't say that doing frequent backups will "keep your blog safe" but it is most important if disaster strikes. For example:
You ugrade to a new release version and find most of your beloved must-have plugins are now broken. With a backup you can roll back to the prevous version and keep the blog live while you look for alternative plugins.
Your blog gets hacked and polluted with SPAM comments. With a backup you can fix the problem and restore your comments back to before they were polluted.
In any case, frequent regular backups are very very important.
I really like this article and as a new blogger, it has given me some good tips.
