Sometimes you need to take a backup of your website prior to making big changes or installations in production. In most cases, this should be done in staging, however there are still instances where this is needed. For these cases, we have written the following documentation.
- Log into your WordPress Admin Area (example.com/wp-admin)
- Find WP Time Capsule on the left-hand side, and go to Settings
- Under On-Demand Backup, click the Backup now button.
Note: If this is for a migration, checking 'This is a backup for migration' will ensure your data is preserved properly during transfer.'
- You can confirm that your backup is running successfully by going to WP Time Capsule -> Backups, and looking at the top of the page.
