Quick Setup

The Solid Backups Quick Setup page is designed to help you get started with Solid Backups by walking through four important settings. After installing Solid Backups, the Quick Setup page will appear.

Quick Setup Options

Enter your e-mail address to get backup and error notifications. 

This email address will receive email notifications for errors. You can further customize Solid Backups Email Notifications by visiting the Email Notifications section of the General Solid Backups Settings page.

Create a password for restoring or migrating your backups 

This is the required password for running the ImportBuddy import/migration script. This password prevents unauthorized access when using this tool. We strongly recommend using a password different from your WordPress login password. This password can also be configured in the General section of the Solid Backups General Settings page.

Where do you want to send your backups (scheduled or manually sent)? 

From the drop-down list, select the location for backup files to be stored:

To manage Solid Backups remote destinations, visit the Remote Destinations page in the Solid Backups Menu.

How often do you want to back up your site? 

From the drop-down list, select a schedule for backing up your site.

  • Not Automated Schedule
  • Starter [Recommended] (Monthly complete backup + weekly database backup)
  • Active Blogger (Weekly complete backup + daily database backup)

If you want to further customize your Solid Backups backup schedules, you can visit the Scheduling page in the Solid Backups menu.

Once you've completed all four steps, click Save Settings and make your first backup!
