Safely host your WordPress site
Every webmaster should have few backups of his or her website in case something goes wrong. WordPress is an application based on PHP and MySQL. As such you need to backup all its files as well as database to have a full copy of your site. The easiest way is using FTP. However, FTP is not that secure so you’d better prepare another backup. Then, what’s the best place to save that duplication? You may consider backing up WordPress to Dropbox, Google Drive or any other well-known cloud storage. But the following part will show the WordPress backup to Yandex.Disk.
Backup WordPress to Yandex.Disk
Yandex.Disk is a cloud service especially popular among Russian users. Some people feel Yandex is much more affordable than Dropbox with a very similar API. While there seems no plugin in Yandex for WordPress and vice versa. How do we link them? Don’t worry, MultCloud helps.
MultCloud is a free file transfer online tool which lets you manage multiple clouds directly through the browser with only one login. As mentioned before, WordPress backup to Yandex.Disk is essentially the integration of FTP and Yandex. Thus, connect these two via MultCloud then you can easily sync backups.
Do it with MultCloud
What you need is just a MultCloud account first. Register or experience without signing up.
The second step, follow the guide to add FTP and Yandex one by one into MultCloud.
Spported clouds: Dropbox, Evernote, Flickr, Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon S3, WebDav, Google Drive, Box, SugarSync, OneDrive, CloudMe, Cubby, MyDrive, WEB.DE, Hidrive, BaiDu, MediaFire, ownCloud, Alfresco, ADrive, hubiC, MySQL and MEGA.
After that, you’re able to copy/move/transfer files between them by dragging or using copy options from contextmenu. If right clicking a specific document, you’ll view more options like “Share”, “Preview”, etc
Since regular website backup is important in case of data loss, MultCloud offers you four schedule modes to send WordPress backup to Yandex Disk.
As MultCloud plays well on such a number of clouds, if you forget the location of any file someday, just type the keywords or even the suffix in the search box. It will search across clouds quickly.
Tips: Every user is going to have 2TB Traffic for each account, which is usually enough for file transfer. But it’s possible to get 10TB free Traffic provided you share the message.
