On-demand backup of your WordPress database.
That's what I was looking for. I'm logged into my WordPress websites frequently. I don't usually log into any of my cPanels (control panels), unless I have to, to set up or fix something. So to log into cPanel just to make a backup is just a hassle. This plugin resolves that issue for me. I will be logging into cPanel much less now, thanks to Austin Matzko.
does not work with WP3.9.1
I have been using WordPress Database Backup and it’s really one of those must have WP plugins. Thanks for making it! I'm glad he now has the option for weekly emails with backups because some of my smaller sites do not need backups as often. It's rare that I would give a 5 star rating but this deserves it!
This small plugin does everything that I want, which is to backup my database and send it to the email address of my choice. A different popular plugin sells an add-on for the ability to choose an email address, other than the site admin, to send the backup.
This plugin does not contain features that I do not need, such as constant upselling of premium add-ons, options to backup files, and sending backups to cloud services.
I believe this is the first backup plugin I ever used with WordPress. I was using it until it seemed like it was not being updated anymore, and then I switched to other options. I'm glad this plugin has been updated recently! Thanks Austin!
I recommend it.
This lovely plugin has saved my sites on more than one occasion. Thank you!
Easy to use plugin. When I downloaded the mysql backup from Cpanel. Size were different. But after using the plugin, mysql size was more than the previous.
seems not to have a lot of different functions/options but for me it's doing it's job!
This plugin works flawlessly. In my option, the best available for backing up a WordPress database. Now only can it back up on demand, but it can also back up on a schedule.
I have also written some content if anyone is interested on installation and usage over at the InMotion Hosting Support Center. You'll find it at the following:
