does the backup plugin save all the images?

  • I understand the backup of the database using the plugin saves the text etc, but does it save the images i’ve uploaded to the posts as well?

    images are files, they are not stored in your database.

    how would i go about automatically backing up the images then?

    I also don’t know how to automatically backup images.

    What I do is periodically download the whole wp-content folder through FTP client.

    All the plugins and images are inside wp-content.

    As far as I know, you can’t automatically back them up. Where would you back them up if all of this is being done automatically?

    The best way to back them up is to use FTP to transfer them to your computer.
