My Backup plugin no longer works. And I just read there is a security flaw with the plugin and I see here in the forum that this plugin is a common failure point.

Is there another way to backup my blog and easily restore it without using the plugin? This is not the first time I've had problems with the Backup plugin and in fact it's the only problem I've had with Bludit. Is there a workaround?

I want to keep using Bludit but I have to have a reliable way to backup and restore, especially in this age of sites being constantly attacked and hacked.

You can download the directory /bl-content (with all the databases and contents).

If you modified themes or plugins download them also.

That's all.

Also some hosts allow backups of the installations of the account.
