Having an up to date backup of your database in case of security breaches or general site issues is good practice. The first step is to enable Database Backups. To enable, navigate to Security> Settings> Database Backup and click ‘Enable’
Once the feature is enabled, click “Configure Settings” to choose the Backup Method, Number of Backups to Retain, and include or exclude specific tables. The backup can be saved as a copy on your server, emailed to the WordPress Admin email address, or both.
The default interval is 3 days; however, if you update your site frequently, we suggest daily backups.
