Developer Michael Dewildt released a new plugin this week called WordPress Backup to Dropbox that will automatically create backups of your blog and upload them to your Dropbox account. About the plugin’s design and purpose, Dewildt said:
This has been created to give you piece of mind that your blog is backed up on a regular basis.
Just choose a day, time and how often you wish yor backup to be performed and kick back and wait for a zipped archive of your websites files and its database to be dropped in your Dropbox!
While not the only way to back up a WordPress site (we’ve talked about others before), Backup to Dropbox does join a short list of free WordPress backup options. With nearly 1,000 downloads yet this week, it seems to be pretty popular in the community so far.
What do you think? Will you give this plugin a shot and back your site up using Dropbox?
