How to Schedule a Backup with the WordPress BackupGuard Free Plugin (Single Profile)

This tutorial will show how you can configure a backup with a single profile using the Wordpress BackupGuard plugin.
Please, follow the steps below to schedule a single profile:

Navigate to the Schedule section and press the Scheduled backup switch button.

Specify the options, e.g. frequency, time, entries to backup, cloud storage to upload and finally don't forget to press the Save button.

That's it. If you've not received any error message, you've successfully configured your scheduler. So, you should just wait for the scheduled backup to run when it is due.

Sometimes depending on WordPress and Server configurations, the scheduler might not be successfully activated. Please check our FAQ (scroll down this page) to see how you can troubleshoot such situations.

If the scheduler runs but you see a warning sign next to the backup, you can download the backup log this way and send it to our support team. We will troubleshoot the issue for you.
