Students will need to have (or plan to get) a WordPress website that needs backing up.
Wordpress powers some of the most important websites on the planet. If you own a WordPress website, then you know how powerful and easy it is to use. Wordpress makes it easy for anyone, even a complete beginner, to build a high quality, professional website without needing to learn the technical aspects of web design.
The one problem I often get asked though, is how do you back it up? I mean you wake up one morning to find your website is returning some kind of error in the web browser. What do you do? How do you restore your website? For that matter, how do you back it up so that you have what you need to restore it?

I’ll show you how to manually backup and restore the site, and then show you a free plugin you can use to automate the backups on a schedule that suits you.

I run a website called ezSEONews, where I teach my visitors search engine optimization (SEO) skills, and the art of building websites with WordPress. I have also written and published a number of books that are available on Amazon Kindle and as paperbacks, including best selling books on WordPress (“WordPress for Beginners”) and SEO (“SEO 2014 & Beyond”).
As an ex-schoolteacher, I hope I can make complicated topics simple to understand. I certainly enjoy trying!
