I’m pretty sure that I posted my experience on backing up my WordPress based web site. For some reason, it didn’t seem to show up here. Maybe I posted it in another forum. Oh well.
The backup experience was fairly easy. At first I tried using a program called “wpBackup”, but it proved to be too complicted for the task. I had installed it about two months ago. Just recently I installed the much better “WP-DBManager”. This program is simplicity itself. Its feature set is very acommidating. It now have the app backup my daTo tabase locally on server, and email me a copy to Gmail account.
As for the other files, I just transfer them back to my laptop every week or two. That’s about it.
