How to Create a Backup Now with WordPress Backup 2 Dropbox (wpb2d) Plugin

I had this problem today, I wanted to create a backup before making some changes. WordPress Backup 2 Dropbox appears to only have a schedule setting. A lot of people complained in the reviews of the plugin about this and gave it low ratings.

But I discovered this functionality is actually there, it's just in a place nobody would ever think to look: Backup Log.

How To Backup Your WordPress Immediately with WordPress Backup 2 Dropbox:

1. Login to your WordPress Admin section.

2. Find WPB2D on the sidebar and click 'Backup Log'

wpb2d-sidebar-nav

3. Click 'Start Backup'

4. You're done!

It can take some time to generate the backup, but it seems to restart itself pretty well and get it done, eventually.

I hope this saves some WordPress Developers time in the future!
