Part of our standard build
By , for WP 3.8.3

We at MyWebApps have just concluded a brief, informal shootout between some of the leading WordPress backup plugins, and selected UpdraftPlus as the default backup solution included in our standard build for client websites.

BackUpWordPress was our 2nd choice (for its sheer simplicity), with honourable mentions to Online Backup for WordPress, BackWPup and XCloner.

This plugin saved our site.

Could not have been any easier to use. It restored the site completely and perfectly the first time. Thank you!

This plugin does the job smooth and fast. Quite easy to setup and use. I've already started using it in all my sites. Thanks to the author for spending his precious time on that.

Très satisfaite
By , for WP 3.8.3

J'utilise ce plugin pour les sauvegardes de mes sites et les sites de mes clients.

J'utilise aussi la fonction complémentaire facilitant la migration d'un site vers un autre (maquette vers site de production, changement d'hébergeur,..)

J'ai testé préalablement plusieurs plugins et c'est celui qui me donne le plus satisfaction: fiabilité, fonctionnalités, options de sauvegarde,...

Certaines fonctionnalités nécessitent d'acheter des upgrades, mais les fonctions de base rendent déjà un excellent service.

Very fat, lots of ads, whines about site not working correctly.

They wanted me to give them a review as soon as I installed it. Ok.

This could be a great plugin, I don't know. As soon as I installed this plugin it was displaying a line telling me that javascript/jquery wasn't working correctly with a link telling me the problem was simple to solve...

Turns out they want me to shut down the site and spend 2 hours debugging the problem (they provide step by step instructions, so helpful!) Problem is theirs -- this site works fine without them. Client laughed when I asked if they wanted to pay for debugging 3rd party software that had just been installed....

Other issue is that the admin page is COVERED with ads for all kinds of stuff that I should be excited about, Right? Nah.

On deinstallation I saw the longest list of files I have ever seen in a plugin, seriously...

Thanks guys!

Works like a backup plugin should
By , for WP 3.9

On a couple of my sites, I have the 'Big' name plugin for backups, and it has never impressed me with its ease-of-use, or its performance.

I decided to try UpdraftPlus on a new site, and was pleasantly surprised by how easy the setup is, and totally satisfied with the performance.

In short....it works the way a backup plugin should.

I wonder how I did without it!
By , for WP 3.9

I am using it currently on 4 very busy sites, and one of them has a webstore with a large mysql db and lots of files. But every time it performs the backups completely flawless to amazon s3.|

IMO This is the best one out for this purpose at this moment
