I know. Nobody likes thinking about disasters. But I say it’s better to be prepared; it helps me sleep at night!
When it comes to preventing WordPress disasters, I just got some great tips from iTheme’s WordPress Disaster Week that I’ll be implementing right away.
Here’s the first one:
Create a hit-by-a-bus folder. If you take a vacation, you’ll be able to plan for it. But if an unexpected disaster happens, there is no planning involved. Put all of the information your clients need into an emergency folder (so they aren’t left high and dry if something happens to you)—and give somebody access to it. I got a lot of this in place when I went on maternity leave, but I’m going to make the Google folder comprehensive and share it with a trusted developer and my husband.
