Why Do You Need To Backup Your WordPress Site?
As a CMS platform, we love it! It is robust and super versatile. That doesn't mean that it doesn't have its downsides. As the most popular content management system for building websites in the world, it is also the most hacked platform.
Much more common than that is the development of conflicts between WordPress and the various plugins used to create your site.
WordPress sites are made up of the CMS itself along with various plugins or codes that are written by various developers. When codes change, which they often do, conflicts can arise and subsequently take down your entire site.
Backing up your site protects it in both situations.
