I get several requests per week for more info on WordPress plugins. I think it’s because I am such a geek when it comes to WordPress and plugins.
Today, I share a video I created just to share some of the *must have’s* with you, and exactly how to set them up.
Starts at 3:24
A WordPress plugin for maintenance, designed to backup your blog’s database on a schedule that you setup. It will optionally email that backup to you, in addition to saving it on your server. This plugin also contains features to allow you to optimize your database on a schedule, or repair or restore your database via the built in control panel. The WP-DBManager WordPress plugin will protect your asset by sending you a backup daily.
In the event of a server hack or crash, you will need to restore your database back to a good version. Don’t wait until you need to restore a database to load and setup this plugin. Set it up now, and let it run so when you do need it, it is already there
