How to Find the WordPress Automatic Backups Interface

Automated backups are only available for WP Enthusiast, WP Professional, and WP Professional Plus accounts at this time.

You can now schedule backups for your WP hosting WordPress sites. This automatic backup will repeat within the time frame given, creating a backlog of backups for you to pull from in case you want to roll back your site to a previous version. The first step to setting up your automatic WordPress backups is to visit the WordPress Backups interface.
