Managing a WordPress site or two is not that difficult. You will have to take time to update all your plugins, upgrade your themes, manage users, and do other tasks required to run your community by logging into each of your sites. Your job will be much harder when you have to do those tasks for more than a couple of sites. InfiniteWP is an awesome script that makes managing your sites from one place easy. It can even backup all your sites from one dashboard.

To schedule backups using InfiniteWP, you are going to have to get the Schedule Backups add-on. It is a premium add-on that normally costs you under $70. Once you install that, you will be able to backup your files and database on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Users can choose the start time for the backup process and the number of backup files they would like to keep.

InfiniteWP can optimize your database before starting the backup process. It has a fail-safe mode just in case your backup fails. You can make it even more powerful by picking up the Backup to Repositories add-on. That allows you to send your backup files to Amazon S3 or Dropbox and restore your files more conveniently.

I have met and seen so many webmasters who rely on their host’s backup system for disaster recovery. There is nothing wrong with that. But you should always have a backup for your backups. In other words, you need to have your files stored in multiple locations to reduce your risk. The good news is backing up your site at an offsite location (e.g. Amazon S3) won’t cost you a lot. Here are 5 fairly affordable services and tools you can use to do the job:

Jungle Disk: the service we rely on to backup our servers. Each server will cost you $5 a month plus storage costs. You get 10 GB of storage for free though. Use this to backup your site to Rackspace or Amazon S3. You get encryption for your data too. [click to continue…]
