Keep your valuable WordPress website, its media and database backed up to Dropbox in minutes with this sleek, easy to use plugin.
To diagnose issues with your plugin please refer to this sticky topic.
Simply download WPB2D Simple Restore and upload it to an empty host. Once uploaded you will be guided through a wizard of 5 easy steps and have your blog restored in no time.
You don’t even have to install WordPress!
By default PHP has its time limit set to 30 seconds. The plugin will attempt to set the time limit to unlimited in order to complete the backup, however if safe mode is enabled this will not be possible.
In addition the Apache TimeOut directive has a default of 300 seconds (5 minutes) that cannot be altered without manual intervention. It is not recommended you change this value.
However, the plugin has been designed to get around these limitations by using a backup monitor that will detect if the backup has gone away and resume it from where it stopped.
In short, this is a feature! :-)
The database is backed up into two files named '[database name]-backup-core.sql' and '[database name]-backup-plugins.sql'. These files will be will be found at the path 'wp-content/backups' within the App folder of your Dropbox.
The first file contains all the core WordPress tables and data and the second contains tables and data related to your plugins. Sometimes your second file will not have any data in it because most plugins will store their data in the wp_options table.
In order to save time and bandwidth the plugin only uploads files that have changed since the last backup. The only exception is your SQL dump file that will be uploaded every time.
Dropbox has this functionality built in and it is extremely easy to do, please checkout this blog post for more information.
You can also install the zip premium extension that will zip up all your files, including the SQL dumps, before uploading it to Dropbox allowing you to store multiple backups.
