The Forum and Codex Teams would appreciate it if you could help us to 
promote WordPress Backup Week. We will be having a series of events 
leading up to the Backup Week so we need to start promoting it now.  Any 
help would be appreciated to make this a success.  Thanks.

Press Release

Backing Up is Not Just for Cars

Your WordPress database contains every post, every comment and every 
link you have on your blog. If your database gets erased or corrupted, 
you stand to lose everything you have written. There are many reasons 
why this could happen and not all are things you can control. But what 
you can do is <b>backup your data<b>. After all, it is important isn't it?

<a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups">WordPress Backup 
Week July 23-30</a> aims to help you become more familiar with the 
process of backing up and protecting your data.

Step-by-step backup instructions will be available in the online manual, 
the <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org">WordPress Codex</a>, and 
support provided online in the <a 
href="http://www.wordpress.org/support">WordPress Support Forum</a> to 
help you through the process.

Guides will be available to help you backup your WordPress site and 
database for a variety of systems and server software such as 
<b>cPanel<b>, <b>DirectAdmin<b>, <b>Plesk<b> and <b>vDeck<b>. Consider 
using this Backup Week as an incentive to backup all your valuable 
documents and software, too.

These guides will assist you in determining:

<li>When and how to make backups.</li>
<li>How to make things right after an unexpected data loss befalls your 
WordPress database.</li>

Making backups is essential because problems inevitably occur and you 
need to be in a position to take action when disaster strikes. Spending 
a few minutes to make an easy, convenient backup of your database will 
allow you to spend even more time being creative and productive with 
your website.
