Blogs Get Hacked – It Could Happen To You

The good news is that you can be prepared for something like this in case it ever did happen to you. 

There is a little plug in for your Word Press blog that allows you to set it up so that a complete back

up of your blog is emailed to you EVERY NIGHT.

You can have this back up file emailed to a Gmail account and have a rule set so it automatically goes

into a separate folder so you never even think about it coming in or see it coming in.

How To Back Up Your Word Press Blog

 Get this plug in called the Word Press Database Backup:

or you can install it directly from your Word press Dashboard.
Install it, choose to email every day, and give it an email address.

How To Restore Your Blog

    1.  Go to your cpanel for your site, scroll down until you find MyPhpAdmin.

     2.  Find the database that your blog is installed on.  The backup files that are sent

to you from WP-DB-Backup will have the same name as the database that you need to recover.

     3.  Click on the tab that says import at the top of the new screen that just opened.

     4.  Click on choose file and find the backup file that you are going to use to restore your blog.

If you take couple of minutes to do this now, you can relax knowing that your work will be protected.

    Hi Jeanette,

    I like posts like this one because it reminds me of the importance of precaution.

    I rarely see the subject of back up being expanded on and when I do I feel like I should do something about it. Usually there is something missing when people post about hacking and how to back up the system.

    You didn’t leave out anything and I feel like I could do it right now.

    By the way I replied to the question you left when commenting on my blog. You can read it there right under your comment.

    I have backed-up my blog regularly but I don’t have the slightest idea how to restore it just in case. Thanks for providing it here. 🙂
