Configuring XCloner for use in Watchful

 XCloner has been a 'top 10' backup plugin for many years. One of the reasons for this popularity is the large feature set included with XCloner, including a number of offsite and cloud-storage options.   

To use XCloner as a backup tool in Watchful:

  1. In your WordPress website backend, select Plugins > Add new from the sidebar.
  2. In the search bar enter XCloner.
  3. Install and activate the XCloner which should be the first in the list. 

    xcloner install activate
  4. From the sidebar in the WordPress backend select Site Backups > Generate Backups. Follow the on-screen prompts to create a backup.
  5. Once a successful backup is produced from the WordPress backend, you are ready to perform remote backups with Watchful.
