  • Hi,
    I’m fairly new to wordpress and have downloaded Instant WordPress. The problem I have is my dashboard says I should backup any files before I upgrade. But I don’t know how to do that. Should I take a copy of all the files within Instant WordPress because it’s localhost? I can’t any information on it apart from WordPress codex talking about automatic backup within the hosting server.
    Any help will be gratefully received.

  • Copy all files and directories with FTP from your hosting sever to your local computer is one option but for this you need to also make a copy of your database from your server.
    This could be done with PHPmyadmin or wordpress pluging for this purpose.

    Hi

    Thank you for your speedy reply, but the version of wordpress I have is Instant WordPress and is already on my computer/localhost not on the webhost server. I just want to know should I just make a copy of this and then upgrade?

    Hey There,

    You can find free plugin that can create a backup for you on requested time automatically.

    Do check plugin store.

    Thank you.
