    Anyone know a really good way (free) to back up my wordpress blog? There is a plugin called back up buddy but I believe it is a premium plugin. Thanks.

    I use a free plugin, think it's called xcloner- it's really good. All you need to do:

    1.Install
    2.Create backup folder and add location to settings
    3.add temp location
    4.change default password

    Then your good to go, I use it's manual backup feature, but you can schedule backups I think.

    Are there any plugins for this? There seem to be plugins for every imaginable thing now a days.

    Yes there are plugins. They work OK in general and some you can schedule to email your SQL database to you.

    Search for wp-db-backup on Wordpress

    I'm a big fan of WP Twin too as it can backup or move the whole site including plugins, directories etc.

    Get to know PHPMyAdmin as it is a great tool.
