Wasabi isn’t your typical backup provider. Instead of offering their backup software, they focus on providing secure and affordable cloud storage that can be used as a target for your existing backup solution. Now you can use Wasabi as your backup companion with FlyWP.

You can easily integrate Wasabi with FlyWP and start backing up your WordPress site.

Here’s a quick introduction to Wasabi as a cloud storage option for backups:

  • Cost-effective: Known for competitive pricing compared to other cloud storage services.
  • Focus on Hot Storage: Ideal for frequently accessed backups since it prioritizes fast retrieval.
  • Scalable: Easily adjust your storage space as your backup needs grow.
  • Security-focused: They emphasize data security with features like encryption.

Let’s get started with the process:

First, you must have the servers and sites created in FlyWP before proceeding with the steps.

Step one: getting started

First, enter one of the sites created here. Or you can create a new site with FlyWP.

Step three: website backup configuration

Now before you create a backup, you need to enable an important option for a successful backup process. Yes, you need to create a bucket. For that, click on the “buckets” on the Wasabi’s dashboard and then fill in the blank pages.

  • Provide the information. Bucket name that we have created earlier and the region. So it will automatically create a backup daily at 12 am.

Please note: Make sure to match the bucket and region name where you created it on Wasabi. Otherwise, you’ll get an error
