This blog is to backup your GoDaddy Managed wordpress site. Previously, we have seen how to backup GoDaddy hosting account. Managed WordPress is a little different, where we will have to configure database credentials separately.
We will step right into the configuration part. GoDaddy provides with SFTP access, but no shell access for Managed WordPress Hosting. We cannot use SSH Tunnel for database backup. We can use Direct Mysql to backup database.
- FTP Protocol - SFTP
- MySQL backup - Direct Mysql
- Application - WordPress
We need the following details:
- FTP IP address and port
- FTP username and password
- Database credentials
Login to your GoDaddy control panel, and click on manage for corresponding Wordpress site.
In settings tab, you can expand to get details of IP adddress.
Click on View button for SFTP user to get SFTP port and SFTP password details.
Database credentials can be fetched from Setting panel, by clicking on View Database phpmyadmin. Note that the database name is same as the database user name.
Login to your BountySite control panel and choose the sitename from the drop down. Go to Sidemenu > Manage sites and backup > Configure Backup.
In next step, enter FTP web directory as '/'.
In BountySite control panel go to DB Backup(Sidemenu > Manage sites and backup > DB backup). Enter the credentials obtained from GoDaddy manage settings page. Choose Mysql backup mode as MysqlDirect. Before adding database, make sure you verify credentials.
Run first backup
Its time to run first backup now. Go to backup history page(Sidemenu > Manage sites and backup > Backup History). Click on Schedule Backup now to initiate backup request.
That is all! You have configured backup for your GoDaddy Managed WordPress site.
