Backing up data is one of the primary duties of website administrators. Backing up and keeping copies regularly in a safe storage can eliminate the risks of losing website data. Using ArvanCloud Object Storage, you can make a backup copy of the information on the website with high security, suitable speed, and many facilities and quickly restore the desired version when needed.

If you use a WordPress content management system on your website, you need a software or an interface plugin to back up and store it on ArvanCloud Object Storage. Two plugins, UpdraftPlus and Duplicator, are among the most popular tools that you can use to easily back up your WordPress website automatically and save and maintain it on the cloud using features such as backup scheduling.

This guide will discuss how to work with the UpdraftPlus tool.
