WordPress : Complete backup

Most of WordPress plugins allow you to backup your database automatically, but what about files? There’s one or more plugins for it!

Here are 2 plugins you need to be safe :


The plugin that allows you to backup your files is called WordPress Backup.

WordPress Backup, once installed, creates 3 zipped files of folders of the same name :

  • uploads.zip
  • theme.zip
  • plugins.zip

You can configure the plugin to plan automic backups, etc. It’s simple and it works well.


There are many plugins for it, but one of best is, according to me, DBC Backup. It allows you to plan automic backups of your database, easily and fast.

    Bonjour Guy,
    Thanks for this post. It was just what I was looking for. I have a plugin I want to install and got the warning that it hadn’t been tasted on the version of WordPress I’m running. I’m sure it would be fine but seeing as the site is finally looking how I like it, I don’t want to mess it up for the sake of the time it takes to backup 😉

    Thank you again,

    I do the same. Crashed my site once, corrupted the database and had to restore to month old backups that I had created manually. Although, it was kind of a special case. The blog, for some reason I can’t fathom, shared a database with a very data and traffic heavy website. Something got in the way and we were all back to the stoneage for about 24 hours.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    layout of your blog? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
