Open your WordPress website Dashboard.

Schedule Backup

Enable Schedule Backup which is disabled

Schdeule Backup Setting

Step 1: Set the Cron Cycle to run periodically at a fixed time to backup.

Step 2: Choose the server to save the backup file.

By default, you will get the “Local Web Server” option to save your file but we don’t recommend you to save your backup file there. Because if your local server crash then all your data will be destroyed.

That’s why we recommend you use cloud services to save your backup file. There are many cloud servers you will find, among them “Google Drive” is our addon cloud server. So you can store your backup file in Google Drive, which you will find in our “Addon” tab.

To know more about installing Google Drive in your Everest Backup Plugin, go to “Everest Backup Google Drive“.

Step 3: Select what to backup( plugins, themes, media, and database).

Choose the time, location, and items to backup and enable the send me email

Step 4: Enable Notify so that you will get an email log once the scheduled backup is complete. If you don’t enable the email, it won’t send you a status email. So better will allow it.

Step 5: Save the setting

According to the time you have set, location, and selected items will be backup. You will be notified once it is completed.

Now no need to worry about any data fraud, hacking, server faults, or other reasons. Furthermore, having a complete backup of your website, including files and databases, will save you from losing years of hard work.
