You will see the Updraftplus plugin which has over 3+ Million Active Installations by David Anderson. It is the most popular and best plugin to create your website backup and restore the website. Just click on Install now button and after installing activate the plugin.



After activating the plugin we have to create a backup file of the website so to do that you can go to the options from the plugins page or you can hover on settings and you will find the UpdraftPlus backups. Simply click on that and you will redirect to the updraftplus page.


After redirecting you will see this interface where a lot of options are available here. But don't worry let me tell you step by step how to do all of these. Here you can see that a backup is already created because I installed and created a backup before. But in your case you will not see any backups so, what you have to do is click on the big Backup Now button.


After that check all of these and click on backup now, then the backup will start automatically. You have to just wait to finish the backup.


After finishing the backup you will see a file is created on the existing backup option. Here updraftplus create five files for our website means database, plugins, themes, uploads, and others. So, after clicking on every data, the download option will available for us so that we can download all files on our computer.


So, for example, your website crashed or the website is not opening, so, suppose here I have reset my wordpress website and just to show you how you can get back your website within few minutes.

Here you will see three buttons means to restore, delete and view the log on the right side of the window. So, if you wanna get back your website in one click then just click on restore, or if you don't see the buttons you can manually upload the backup files from here like above the image.


So, here in this case I clicked on the blue restore button and after that, we have to check all of this and click on next and then click on restore button and wait for complete restoration.


So, it depends on your website and how big your website file is in size. So, after completing the process your website will be back like before. That's the process of how you can backup and restore your wordpress website.
