Automatic WordPress Backup

Automatic WordPress Backup is a great utility plug-in for WordPress that can provide safe, secure off-site backup of your WordPress blogs for pennies a day.  I installed it on all four of my company’s websites yesterday (two production & two development sites) with no problem at all. The hardest part of the whole process was signing up for Amazon’s Webservices‘  S3 Storage offering,  and that was only difficult because I dropped my credit card between the wall and the desk and hard to fish it out with a yardstick and masking tape!  I was able to install, activate, and complete a backup of all 4 sites in less than 15 minutes!

While there is a cost to backup to Amazon S3 servers, the cost for the four fairly large websites has been averaging  $0.03 a day – which averages out to $2.74 per site per year!  Definitely worth the peace of mind I’ll be getting from having a secure offsite backup of the website created each night.
