Do a backup of your WordPress DB using a plugin

You spend a lot of time on your WordPress Blog, lavish care, love and affection and a good supply of tender articles, and through this hard work, you find that the number of readers of your blog is increasing. This only encourages you to ensure that you are spending the regular time required, as well as searching for more ways to ensure that your blog gets promoted even more. Have you ever spent the time to consider whether your blog contents are secure (not in terms of hack-proof, although you need to do that; this post is more in terms of having a good backup).
If you consider the normal user who has got WordPress installed on a shared server with a standard hosting service, their server hosts a large number of other users as well, and there is always the risk that a virus brings down the machine, or there is some physical malfunction, and then you stop to consider that all your data is gone. But what can you do ? You need to ensure that your wordpress table contents are available with you in the form of a regular backup; now you can do that through your hosting service, since they provide an option to do a backup when you want.
However, consider the use of this Plugin that gives you a variety of ways of getting the backup in your hands, including the convenience of getting it via email. The plugin is called “WordPress Database Backup” and is available at this location (link). Features:

Select how you’d like the backup to be delivered:
Save to server : this will create a file in /wp-content/backup-*/ for you to retreive later
Download to your computer : this will send the backup file to your browser to be downloaded
Email : this will email the backup file to the address you specify
Click “Backup!” and your database backup will be delivered to you.
