[resolved] What files need to be backed up? (5 posts)

    HI, which files should be backed up to allow a WP (twentytwelve-child) site to be 'reinstalled' to its latest working state - before either hacker vandalism or admin screw-ups?

    Should the entire WordPress folder for the site be saved to an alternative backup drive once in a while?

    thanks

    I would use a plugin.

    Why re-invent the wheel?

    If you want to do manually backup, then all files on root, for example, index.php, wp-config.php etc and entire wp-content folder.

    Also you should have backup of your database.
