Ok, I've been doing a little bit of research. I need to upgrade to the newest version of WP and Willie Crawford has said that this is a critical update.
However, I know I need to back up my WP sites first. I've done a little bit of research, not sure what the best backup plugin is. Someone here recommended the WordPress Backup plugin, which he said backs up the images, themes and plugins directories. But that doesn't address the database.
So other recommended backup plugins I found in my search were:
1. DBC Backup
I'm VERY non-techie and am afraid I'm going to break something!
I'm in contact with a guy from Fiverr.com who has been doing small jobs for me and can do the backups and updates. (He already did one for me a few weeks ago.) But I need to be able to do this myself if necessary (AND know where the backup files are).
Trouble is, I'm not sure which backup plugin(s) I need or which are best.
What is your recommendation?
Thanks so much!
