Simple Tools to Optimize and Backup Your WordPress Website.
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.
It's really simple, but easy to use and works.
This plugin DOES NOT come with the ability to schedule your backups. That means you have to manually run the backup every time instead of clicking a button that sets the backup to run once a week (or by some other interval). If you want to set up scheduled backups, the following FREE plugin worked wonderfully for me: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/updraftplus/
I will say the free version of Simple Backup worked fine for me, and I had no complaints. So when I wanted to add scheduling, I thought I'd support the company (and save myself some time) and upgrade to the premium version. I paid $20, downloaded the plugin, and it didn't install.
I sent the company an email with the error and a screenshot, they emailed me a "new" version of the plugin. That one didn't work either. I sent a second email and they emailed me a second version of the plugin. That one didn't work either. At that point, I'd wasted an hour of my time sending emails, troubleshooting and testing the plugin.
I requested a refund since I felt like I was doing their QA testing for a product that I'd PAID for. The company refused saying they didn't offer ANY refunds for ANY electronic purchases. Before upgrading, beware that you could literally spend hours trying to get the new plugin to work (and still not succeed).
I've never felt so ripped off in my life. I paid $20 and downloaded a plugin that wouldn't install after trying three separate versions and dealing with their support/sending them screenshots for an hour. Yes, I could have probably spent another hour trying to get the thing to work, but that's not the point, I bought it to save myself time and ended up throwing away $20. In my mind, they stole from me, so I don't plan to use any of their plugins in the future -- even their free ones.
