Managed WordPress Portal will automatically backup your live site daily and store the last 30 days automatically. Even though your site will be backed up automatically, you have the option to manually create a backup of your site at any time. Any backup can be downloaded from the Portal and onto your local drive, giving you the ability to securely store a backup offline to restore your site.

The backup process described in this article is for backups of the live site only. Staging sites are not automatically backed up. Use SFTP to perform a manual backup of your staging site and store it on your local computer.
