Total Upkeep WordPress Backup Plugin

Every WordPress website has two major components— the WordPress files and the database. Your WordPress database contains all of your Posts, Pages, Revisions, Theme options, Plugin settings, and all of your website’s users.

It’s important to keep backups of both your WordPress Files as well as the database. Use the following steps to take a full WordPress Database backup using the Total Upkeep plugin.

Pasting WPCORE,/wp-content into excluded files

Making a WordPress Database Backup with Total Upkeep

    2. Copy the text WPCORE,/wp-content from Include, and paste it into Exclude
