Backup WordPress Websites on Google Cloud

Blue Host Had my dog appreciation website for at least 4 years, and made a really serious mistake. They changed my account from an automatic renewal to manual and never sent me an E-mail. Then they canceled my account and deleted my website complete with the awards the website had received. And they didn’t keep a backup on file. I’ll choose someone else to host my site. This company is terrible.

    Hi One Page Zen,
    I created a new VM Instance using a Snapshot. I took the external IP address of the new instance and always redirected me to the instance where I took the Snapshot. If I created a new VM instances I have now 2 machines with the same information but different IP address. Why the new instances redirect to the first one?

    This is an example: the instances that I made the backup is and the new instances that I created using the Snapshot redirect to and not the IP Address that the new VM instances has.

    Hi Joe, thanks for the tutorial. I came from your other video: . You told me to check this video for the query I had. Well, this video is about backing up the wordpress application through snapshots and restoring it by creating an instance. This okay, but what I wanted is to create a backup of my sugarCRM and download it on my computer so that I can use the backup to run on another hosting or anywhere. I need to download the backup file.

    I created the snapshot, but I guess that's not the backup or it does not allow me to download that snapshot. Please help. Hope to hear back soon.
