Uploading a BlogVault Backup
The ‘Upload to Dropbox’ function allows you to upload any backup version to your Dropbox account. This feature comes in handy when you need to store a backup version beyond the 365-day storage period that BlogVault provides, or when there’s a ‘perfect’ or ‘gold copy’ of your site.
Step 1: Choose how you want to upload a backup
There are two ways you could upload a backup version of your WordPress site to your Dropbox account:
1. From the Site Details page
The Backup module on the Site Details page of the BlogVault dashboard allows you to upload the latest version of your WordPress site’s backup to your Dropbox account.
2. From the History page
Clicking on the ‘History’ feature will take you to a timeline of the last 30 backup versions of your site, all/any of which you can choose to upload to Dropbox account.
Step 2: Click on ‘Upload Backup’
All you have to do to upload your backup to Dropbox, is click on ‘Upload Backup’ from the BlogVault dashboard. Dropbox will ask you to verify the application (i.e. BlogVault) that is trying to access it.
Step 3: Sign in to your Dropbox account
Once you click on ‘Continue’, you will be asked to sign in to your Dropbox account:
Step 4: Choose the backup version you’d want uploaded
Once you sign in, you will be asked to choose the backup version you would like to upload to Dropbox. (At this point, you can also change the Dropbox account to which you would like to upload the backup.)
Step 5: Click on ‘Upload’
Once you click ‘Upload’, the process begins.
Once the upload process is complete, you will be notified of it over email. The email will be sent to your BlogVault- registered email address.
Accessing BlogVault Backups in Your Dropbox Account
Once the process is complete, you will be able to see the backup file (in the form of a .zip), in your Dropbox. To access these backup files, you will have to navigate to the ‘Apps’ folder in your Dropbox account, and click on ‘blogVault’ in this folder.
And that’s it! That’s all it takes to upload your BlogVault backups to Dropbox!
