In this video I show you How to Manually Backup & Restore WordPress Database, Files & Folders Without any WordPress Backup Plugins.

WordPress Backup Plugins are great and easy to use but sometimes you want to manually back everything up or just want to have redundant backups to go along with the ones created by your backup plugin of choice.

Redundancy is important because backups can fail so by having more than one, you give yourself a layer of security and peace of mind.

In this video I show you the process of using SSH to create your Secure SSH Keys and I show you how to use FileZilla which is a free FTP program. I also show you how to use SFTP which is a secure way of transferring your files to and from your web server in an encrypted way. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol and SFTP means Secure File Transfer Protocol.

Having a good backup of your WordPress Website is extremely important. It is helpful when you want to migrate your website to a new server or if your website has been hacked and you need to restore from a clean backup.

In the video I use FileZilla which is a free FTP Program and phpmyadmin which you can use to backup your WordPress database. This will give you a full WordPress Backup.
