Using the well-named WordPress plugin ‘WordPress Backup to Dropbox’, you can smoothly backup your whole WordPress site to Dropbox. From there, you can restore it to a new server or just rest assured that your website content is safe.
Install the plugin from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox/screenshots/ (instructions for installing a WordPress plugin are at http://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins) or in your WordPress admin section click Plugins and search for ‘wordpress dropbox’. Click Install Now and then Activate Plugin
With the plugin installed, you’ll then have a new menu item ‘WPB2D’. Click on it and Authorize your Dropbox account.
When that’s done, you can adjust the settings of the plugin so your website will be automatically backed up, and you can rest easy knowing that your website is safe.
- That will give you a copy of all your website files and database. Instructions for moving/restoring your WordPress site can be found at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress.
