BlogVault Guide

What according to you is a blogger’s or a WordPress user’s biggest fear?

My biggest fear is losing years of work due to the server failure or a malware!

Believe it or not, it has happened to many, and surprisingly, the solution is pretty easy.

All you need is a backup system which takes an automatic and timely backup of your entire website. And in times a catastrophic event as mentioned above, the backup becomes the most valuable investment you will have ever made.

In the WordPress ecosystem, there are only a few reliable solutions which ensure that the backup works. BlogVault is one such popular service that lives up to the expectation.

I have shared the detailed features of BlogVault below, but for now, let’s learn to set up an enterprise grade automated backup using this popular WordPress backup solution.

It doesn’t matter if you are a blogger, a freelancer, a web agency or anyone else. As long as you are using WordPress, you should have a backup system to safeguard yourself in the event which is outside one’s control.

Without further delay, let us dive into the exact steps you need to take to configure BlogVault for your WordPress website. At the later section of this review, I have shared a special 20% discount coupon to help you save money.

Let’s go.

Step-by-Step Guide To SetUp BlogVault for Automated WordPress Backup

You can start by creating a BlogVault account. They offer a 7-day free trial, which is good enough for you to test the reliability of the system without spending a penny.

Install BlogVault WordPress Plugin:

The next step is to install the BlogVault WordPress plugin. You can either do it from your WordPress dashboard or let BlogVault do it for you. Since BlogVault uses strong encryption and focuses on data security as well, you can trust them with your login details.

In my case, I used the automatic install feature of BlogVault. Within minutes, their engine installed the plugin and started the first backup of my WordPress site.

Depending upon the size of your website, the backup can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.

To be clear, a complete backup of WordPress contains both database and all the files of WordPress (mostly content of WP_Content folder). The way I see it is, as long as the backup lets you quickly restore your website without any hiccups, it’s a solid one.

I have seen a lot of WordPress users believe that taking backup of WordPress database is enough, which is not the truth. If you are guilty of doing this till today, you should undo the wrong and make sure that you set up the complete backup of your WordPress site.
