Schedule Backups

  1. Log into BoldGrid.
  2. Select Settings under BoldGrid Backup.
  3. In the Backup Schedule section, set a scheduler, Cron or WP Cron (if the cron service isn't on the server), days to backup, time of day, backup location, and files to backup.

  4. Select Retention to set the amount of backups to store.

  5. Select Backup Directory to change the storage location from /boldgrid_backup if desired.
    You'll be prompted to choose whether to move the backups so it'll still show under the Backups tab.
