How to backup your WordPress database with one click

Our plugin offers you a lot of settings for your backups. But it is also possible to get things done the easy way. If you just want to create a WordPress backup of your database, you can use the BackWPup One Click Backup option. You can find this in the WordPress admin area:

  1. Login to WordPress.
  2. Go to BackWPup → Dashboard.
  3. Click on the big blue button Download database backup under One click backup. Your database will be stored as .sql file on your computer.

Note: The WordPress database backup is not a full backup of your WordPress website. For a full WordPress backup you need to save the files of the WordPress installation as well. Create a recurring backup job to save all files. This will prevent you from not being able to restore your website if needed.
