Easy and complete backups + restoration. Manual or automated backups (backup to S3, Dropbox, Google Drive, Rackspace, FTP, SFTP, email + others).
I tried to set up regular FTP site backup to my home server. No backups was created that day and error.log file started non-stop fulfilling with
[Tue Nov 12 15:01:53 2013] [error] [client XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX] PHP Warning: stream_select() [function.stream-select]: You MUST recompile PHP with a larger value of FD_SETSIZE.\nIt is set to 1024, but you have descriptors numbered at least as high as 2138.\n --enable-fd-setsize=3072 is recommended, but you may want to set it\nto equal the maximum number of open files supported by your system,\nin order to avoid seeing this error again at a later date. in /home/XXX/data/www/mysitename/wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/class-zip.php on line 108
messages which instantly caused over 9000% overuse of my hosting disk space limit. Plugin deleting doesn't helped this situation - plugin files still presented on disk and were still needed to be deleted manually (why!?) to stop this madness. Well, f**k you too, mr. UpdraftPlus!
Is it really too much to ask to have a backup and restore plugin that just backs up everything and restores everything.
I would be happy to pay or donate for additional services like backing up to S3 or Dropbox, but this plugin immediately tried to rip you off for an upgrade.
You go to the settings page and it excludes certain files and then says
"The above directories are everything, except for WordPress core itself which you can download afresh from WordPress.org."
NO NO NO
I do not want to have to go to the wordpress core, I want to just backup and restore everything, the files, database, all of it.
Of course underneath it says
Or, get the "More Files" add-on from our shop.
So this Plugin is NOT going to restore your site looking the same way as it did before (I suspect that there is another upgrade for that)
So not impressed with this.
Another one bites the dust
It's a very good plugin... when it works. It will not work at all, unless your blog is getting visited. If your blog is new or private with only occasional visits, it will not work.
This didn't work at all. When I clicked Backup now nothing happened. This is one of those plugins where you need to "click here if it doesn't work" - and then you receive a whole web page full of technical explanations and instructions. Just looking at the amount of text on that page made remove this thing. No good.
...but there weren't any backup sets to be found when restoring.
Try to use backup and receive: Unexpected error: no method '' was found (your UpdraftPlus installation seems broken - try re-installing)
Deleted and reinstalled via the plugins interface and manually. Same error.
Also noticed rather snarky comments by author to others that have problems.
I think I'll keep my distance from this one.
Using s3 for storage.
Hit test button for s3 and restore. Nothing happens. Haha
does this plugin work?

UpdraftPlus Restoration: Progress
ABORT: Could not find the information on which entities to restore.
Actions: Return to UpdraftPlus Configuration
I have now gotten several calls from clients concerning the fact that there are so many updates. At first it was more of an irritant but now they question the validity of the plugin. It would be great if these could be more infrequent. Sometimes it seems they come in every other day. While one would expect it in beta, this is not a beta version.
Thank you. Georgia
