Getting Started


Once you have finished with the JetBackup for Wordpress Installation, it is time to setup the software for the first time!

First, Log in to your WordPress Admin Dashboard and navigate to JetBackup for WordPress from left Navigation Bar.

Initial Setup

When you open JetBackup for WordPress for the first time, you will be asked to login to your JetBackup for WordPress (JetApps) Account. You will then be asked to select the license to associate your website with, once selected, click "Link this domain now".

You will then be redirected to the Backups section of the JetBackup for WordPress Plugin.

* If your license has already reached its limit, you may either upgrade your license or remove one of the websites already associated with your license via the JetApps Client Area. For instructions on how to do so, please visit How to unlink Websites from your JetBackup for WordPress license.
