WordPress Automated Backups

It is important to regularly backup your files. Automatic backups are included in most 2Leaf support packages (make sure to double-check it is included in yours), but if you prefer your own solution, here are some helpful tips:

For automated backups, we recommend using Softaculous. It is the best automatic WordPress installer, updater, and backup solution. It is a paid service, included free for all our hosting and support clients. You have free access in your cPanel. Here are the instructions on how to use Softaculous with automated backups (let us know if you have any trouble!): https://www.softaculous.com/docs/Automated_Backups

WordPress has a paid service called Jetpack which has easy offsite backups starting at $39/yr: https://jetpack.com/features/comparison/

We have also had success with the following free plugin, but automatic backups require purchasing the Pro version of the plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

If none of those solutions work, there are many other free plugins that can be used for making automatic backups: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=backups

Let us know if you have any questions or if none of the above options work for you and we will help you find something else. Keeping regular backups are very important.
