Back Up Your Site!!!

Part 2:Using a WordPress Plugin.

After my experience of losing my site – twice!   Which I described in Back Up Your Site!!! Part 1: The warning. I’ve made this series of posts to show you how to prevent and overcome the problem.

In this video I show you how I was taught to back up my WordPress database so it can be restored if it crashes or gets hacked.

This my first ever video so please excuse the quality.
