If you love your WordPress powered website it’s important to have regular backups.
Backing up your website allows you to retrieve a working version if something goes wrong. Several things can go wrong like a server crash, an external attack, an error during an update, or even human error. Any of the aforementioned can cause you to lose articles, photos and videos which is why backing up your website is so important.
In fact, if a problem occurs, with a proper backup, you can restore the altered files and data. Depending on how often you back up your website, you can retrieve your whole website, without losing anything.
For most websites we suggest a back-up schedule of at least once per week or more depending on the frequency of your updates.
