Backup and Restore on WP Engine

WP Engine has both automated and manual backups to help protect your data, removing the need for any bulky third-party application. Backups exist for all environments on WP Engine by default (Production, Staging, and Development). These backups are stored offsite on Amazon S3 and are encrypted in transit and at rest.

Every backup (manual or automated) includes the following:

  • WordPress core files
  • Themes
  • Plugins
  • Database

Do have a look at their full inclusions and exclusions as well.
