There are many popular plugins to use for backing up WordPress. You can store your backups on Amazon S3, DropBox, or even DreamObjects. Whenever possible, DreamHost recommends that you limit the number of backups to a reasonable amount, as infinite backups can cause performance issues on your site.
- BoldGrid Backup – (free with any DreamHost WordPress plan)
- DreamObjects backups plugin – Written specifically to work with DreamObjects
- UpdraftPlus – Natively supports DreamObjects

It is against DreamHost policy to store personal backups or site backups on the host servers. (This does not apply to VPS and Dedicated servers.) You should remove any backed up contents for the site so that they are stored locally instead. You can read more about the unlimited policy here:
