Keep your valuable WordPress website, its media and database backed up to Dropbox in minutes with this sleek, easy to use plugin.
The "free" version is limited to only 180 seconds of upload time so if you don't have the latest huge bandwidth then there is no way you can backup your website are forced to buy it. DON'T GET FOOLED! There is another really "FREE" backup app which can be used with dropbox and has been downloaded over 100K times! Get that.
don't choose the subfolder option. it's buggy, I changed it once, and now I have 2 subfolders because WPB2D keeps alternating between them. Lucky I have space, or else your backups are toast. Not to mention it's impossible to delete large folders from dropbox. I have to clean up by selecting 1000 files at a time and deleting.
this plugin also keeps overloading the CPU usage for some reason, but not while it's running so much as when it finishes. My site goes down for a about 30min each time WPB2D is done. Of course CPU is elevated during backup too (10hrs+), so you have to time the finish to happen when nobody is visiting for at least 30min. Even partial backups take this ridiculous time.
also the DB backup doesn't work, eg I ran it daily for 2 weeks and it only generated 1 DB 1 week ago ignoring recent changes.
and of course it doesn't sync files so you have to clean it up yourself, and there's also no way to restore files, you'll have to DL from dropbox to your PC, then UL from PC to host.
Set it up on auto backup and checked for a few weeks then stopped checking. Today, my site was compromised and 2000 posts deleted. Went to restore from dropbox plugin back up and last backup was in October. Thanks for this useless plugin.
The concept is brilliant but this plugin requires 64MB PHP memory, which is not possible in a shared hosting environment. This should have been clearly outlined in the description.
