How to create a complete WordPress site backup?

Before the SEOWP theme update, we strongly recommend making a full backup of your WordPress installation

Install a free or premium dedicated plugin for this. The present article will use for example  the UpdraftPlus WordPress backup plugin.
Go to WP Admin > Settings > UpdraftPlus Backups and follow the next image steps:
Do not proceed to any other WordPress process until the backup is finished. Check the last log message to see if there were errors on backup.


When making a WordPress backup, don't forget that besides the server files, is very important to save the WordPress database too. This way, in the case something will go wrong, you will have always a roll-back point.
