WordPress and Google Drive

WordPress is an online open source website creation tool started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by millions of people. Anyway, backing up WordPress probably is the best thing you can do for your website, which will save you when your site gets hacked or you accidentally lock yourself out. But where to keep backups?

Storing backups in a remote location available from anywhere is an ideal choice. Nowadays most people own a Gmail account so why not save a WordPress backup to Google Drive which is a cloud service created by Google that allows users to share files, edit documents, presentations,etc with collaborators. The only question is how to backup WordPress site to Google Drive.
