3 Instant Takeaways
- Make sure you’re running a scheduled backup AND manual ones before you make major changes. Scheduled backups will make sure there’s always a copy of your site saved, and manual ones will make sure you can revert to before you make any changes that might break things.
- Store backups offsite for extra peace of mind. Most backup plugins will let you send backups to destinations like Dropbox, Amazon S3, or Google Drive. This means if your whole server has a problem, there is a copy somewhere else.
- Updating plugins and clearing out the database will keep your site running smoothly. Regular website maintenance can keep your site loading fast and minimize future problems.
