Simple Tools to Optimize and Backup Your WordPress Website.
A client of mine uses this plugin and it is a great way to get a SQL dump and a zip of all the site files. I would like to add that this is a tool for webmasters. If you are a novice to MySQL, then this may not be for you. To restore to a new server you will have to do a few things:
Great job on the plugin!!!
Simple backup really is simple. I love the back up to FTP feature. The only downside is I haven't seen an ability to schedule back ups but maybe that's in the paid version. Works great!
i have the same experience as egoldnews1. switching to something else. (updraftplus?)
deleting this plugin, it had its little bugs, but now it has become totally worthless to me. i'm administrating a couple of little non-profit websites as a favor. the update broke all the advantages it had (no warning i that i've been aware of).
making people dependent of a service and then ask money for the same thing (but crappier), go peeeep yourself with your new business-model.
Yeah, im using this plugin here in my fosyga site and it works for me, the free version works for manually backup.
I've got this tool in two sites now and love it. It's simple and straight forward.
what I would like to see however is a recover option. I don't know if that is a thing that can be baked in. I'd hate to have to go through phpadmin or something brutal in the event of an emergency. : )
got a 500 internal server error everytime i tried to run the backup. finding something else.
I was comparing this backup tool with UpdraftPlus Backup. Simple Backup is very useful and performs a complete backup of all your files and database. The interface is very intuitive and provides lots of options. I'm rating the plugin with 4-stars because the restoration process cannot be completed within the WP Admin (they must be completed manually).
The name says it all. It is a simple tool for running backups. It's my go-to solution. Thanks for a great plugin!
Errors in code (looking for .htaccess file at install) and the timezone setting did not add any stars. Finding something else.
