“You Have a Backup, Don’t You?”

Could you recover your WordPress website if it was lost due to a hardware failure?  If it was hacked?  If it was corrupted during an update or plugin install?

Having good backups can make the difference between a 10 minute recovery and complete site rebuild that may take up to a week. This presentation will cover the basics of backups, and look at several options for creating and restoring backups.

Presented by Rick Radko, a developer and designer with a passion for finding solutions to difficult design problems.
