Taking regular backups of your WordPress website is very important (more than developing a new one). Web masters loses their valuable data because of few mistakes and they don’t have the backup which cost them a considerable measure from the earliest starting point.
In some cases, the server may get crashed and all the code and database gets wiped out from it. Another case can be a website hacked by some professional hackers. Your backup should be ready so that you can restore it in case of any problem.
The major components of a WP website which should be backed up are:
A technical person can take the backup of these directly from the server on which the website is hosted. Otherwise fortunately WordPress has many website backup plugins which can be easily installed on your WP site admin panel.
The most popular among backup plugins is UpdraftPlus which has more than a million users. It is very easy to use and user-friendly. Once you install this plugin, you will get an option for this under Settings. From here, you can backup the database and directories of your WordPress site manually and also on regular basis.
