Back up blog or FTP directory with AppleScript
Authored by: uxjw on Apr 25, '12 04:56:08PM

The only problem with this method is the Wordpress database wouldn't be backed up, and it's often the only thing that changes daily. The files only change when you upload images or modify the theme.

BackWPup ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/backwpup/ ) is the best Wordpress backup plugin I've found - files and database can be backed up and sent to email/ftp/dropbox/s3/etc on a schedule you set.

Which is exactly what I said in my comment on the hint. Though I use a different plug-in; I'll check out the one you mention to see if it's better.
