Rest easy knowing backups are taken nightly and stored up to 30 days (or the 30 most recent backups if any manual backups are created). In the backups tab, you’ll find the backups for the last 30 days as well as statistics about each backup.
Flywheel backs up your site each and every night, making sure that your important data is safe and secure, and that you can revert to a previous version in the event that you made a change that broke the site, or for any other reason.
For more information, see the help article: What plugins are not allowed?
You can manually initiate a backup by clicking the “+ Create A New Backup” Button.
We back up everything in your WordPress folder, including all uploaded files (/wp-content/uploads). We also back up the site’s database.
Just hover over the ellipsis icon on the right side of the backup you’d like to download. In the drop-down menu that appears, you’ll see the option to create a download of that backup.
Just like downloading, simply scroll down the backup you want to restore from. Click the ellipsis icon and select “Restore”. You’ll be presented with a series of fields asking you to confirm that you want to restore your site and allowing you to create a backup of your site as it presently exists. You will be required to enter your Flywheel password to initiate the restore.
For more details on restoring backups, see the help article: How do I restore a backup?
