WP Backup is a plugin compatible with the bbPress plugin that allows you to easily preform an sql backup and and create a tar and gzipped backup of your /wp-content/ directory from within your dashboard. The plugin is very secure and only allows administrators to preform a backup. This plugin allows you to create a backup and download it or upload it to your Dropbox or email it to the administrator as an attatchment. This plugin also works great and has been tested on blogs with thousands of posts.
How do i install?
upload the extracted folder to your wp-plugins directory and activate in the plugins panel
The settings are very basic, it doesn’t matter which option you choose, I included all of them because some hosts disable one but not the other.
