Below is another press release for backup week.  PLEASE post it on your 
blogs, email it to friends, and edit it however you like. Also, this is 
an "official" press release from WordPress so do not use phrases like 
"Lorelle says". Just copy and paste the information below onto your site 
or emails, or rewrite it yourself with some sob story about your 
computer or server crashing to help everyone understand that BACKING UP 
is a good thing. Even if the story does not pertain to WordPress.  The 
Forum and Codex volunteers need your help to get this unusual event 
promoted. It begins in five days, so we need help from all of you. Thanks.


WordPress is celebrating blog security and protection with WordPress 
Backup Week July 23-30.

WordPress, one of the most popular blogging and website management 
tools, is sponsoring WordPress Backup Week July 23-30. Step-by-step 
backup instructions will be available in the online manual, the 
WordPress Codex (http://codex.wordpress.org), and online in the 
WordPress Support Forum (http://www.wordpress.org/support) to help you 
through the process.

Your 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 
backup your data, after all, it is important isn't it? 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 web site.

Backing up your WordPress database has never been easier with WordPress 
plugins which allow you control over how, what, and when you backup, 
even emailing your database backups to you - all pain free.  
Documentation is available to take you through the step-by-step process, 
as well, for backing up your WordPress site and database with cPanel, 
vDeck, DirectAdmin, Plesk, and others.

For your own protection and security, and peace of mind, join us in 
learning how to backup and protect our valuable data and writings during 
WordPress Backup Week. Consider using this Backup Week as an incentive 
to backup all your valuable documents and software, too.
