We are administrators and Synology NAS gives us the opportunity to be “free”. We do not need paid plugins that do a simple thing like backing up the wordpress database. Many people who use Synology NAS as hosting for their sites are “lost” in a jungle of people trying to take advantage of their position as an administrator by selling them unnecessary products under the counter. Today I will teach you how to backup your wordpress SQL database in less than 30 seconds without using any plugins, in a simple and effective way.
