Scheduling Backups with BoldGrid Backup

The BoldGrid Backup plugin provides peace of mind for you by allowing you to schedule WordPress backups. You have the option of setting up the days of the week these backups run on, as well as the time of day. You can also exclude portions of your site, such as core files or your content folder, which will make the backups happen quicker if needed.

Schedule Automatic Backups

  • In the Dashboard, Navigate to BoldGrid Backup → Settings
  • In the Backup Schedule section you have the option of using the cron system on your Linux Host, or WP Cron, which is a virtual cron system that is triggered by someone visiting your site. In most cases, WP Cron is recommended, however if you have disabled it for performance reasons, you may want to check with your host to set up a cron on a schedule.
