Don't use above 4.3.3

This plugin worked great until I tried to test a WP downgrade. The reason for this test was to see what would happen if a plugin was incompatible with the newest version of WordPress, could I use a back up plugin to downgrade back to a stable version? Unfortunately the most recent version of WP, 5, removes manual backup functionality of this plugin. Further, I was unable to restore my WP 4.3.3 version with the backup files. I had to manually downgrade WP to get WP Backup working properly again.

Also, Dropbox linked up easy enough, but never saved any backups there.

For these reasons I can only give the plugin a 3 star.

Stable on WP 4.3.3.

<EDIT> Ooops, I didn’t do the stars right. And editing the post I can’t change my rating – that’s useful!<EDIT>

Working … that s good enough, but ..

Some require more up-to date PHP software or crashing the site. This one works … No experience wit restoration.
Cons: you need to deactivate it, when uploading an image
It also crashes when email notif. is set up, so email notification disabled

Be careful!

Trusted this plugin because of how many downloads it had. Everything worked fine until I tried to restore a backup I made a couple days ago. After I did the restore I got a message saying it could not locate some tables in the directory and my site completely broke. Luckily the company that I hosted with had a backup that was pretty recent so I restored the site and everything was ok, but it was very scary. I’m not sure why it didn’t work, it may have not been capable with my version of wordpress. Needless to say I no longer trust this plugin.
