Best Backup PlugIn For WordPress?

If you were trying to access OpTempo this morning you may have had trouble since the database was acting up for some reason. It brought home to me the point that I need to make sure I backup the database. I had been doing backups manually but not regularly and, as fast as I’m adding posts, I need to do it very regularly. If the database repair hadn’t worked I would have lost about 50 posts. I’ve got a good backup now though!

So, my question is: What is the best WordPress plugin you’ve used for automating backups? If you have a WordPress blog, how are you backing up your site? Are you backing it up?

Leave me a comment and let me know.

I use the aptly named Wordpress Database Backup. Its pretty good as it emails you the file (if you want) every day.

Mind you I’ve not tested the file yet to see if it would work in the event of a crash! Maybe I should…
