A good WordPress Backup Strategy will make you happier

Why Do I Need A Backup Strategy?

Sure, you might be able to get by without a backup strategy for your WordPress site, until you can’t. Nobody expects things to go wrong, especially if they haven’t had it happen before.

Things do go wrong, though, and you need to be prepared, unless, of course, you like worrying about your website going down or freaking out while you try to recover priceless data.

A good backup strategy can help you sleep easy. It makes all the difference between getting your site back online in minutes and the possibility of starting over from scratch.

Cloning is not bad, not at all – when we talk about WordPress

Over the years, medical research and experimentation around clonation have surrounded the term “Clone” with a halo of wickedness. The picture heading this post seems to demonstrate one of these bad practices from the past, but nothing further from reality. In 1925, Brangulí captured the “Artificial Solarium” for infants of unmarried mothers in the “Pabellón Rosa – Casa Provincial de Maternidad y Expósitos” in Barcelona.
