  • 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.


    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.
