Lets face it!
Losing your data is always breath taking. Its like losing your wallet.
Complete Central Backup allows for backups to be made on the fly. There are some backup plugins out right now but sometimes they just get too clunky and are hard to follow. We designed this plugin for the normal user with a clean and simple dashboard to go along with WordPress 3.8.
NOTE: If you are upgrading from 1.0.5 to 2.x.x, please download you backups manually before upgrading. BACKUPS WILL BE LOST IF YOU SIMPLY UPGRADE WITHOUT DOING SO.
NOTE: This plugin has no support and is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure that backups are created and full.
- ONE CLICK to create a backup of your database or file system.
- Schedule weekly, monthly or daily backups of your database or entire WordPress install.
- Enable or disable backup notifications when a scheduled backup is ran.
- Ability to upgrade the plugin and or WordPress without losing any backup data.
- Download your backups for safe keeping.
- New component structure to support future features.
All support matters are recommended to be place at our blog. This way you will get a response sooner as this plugin has limited support. We can not guarantee support for this plugin but we will try!
Where are my backup stored ?
Backups are store in a directory labeled “wpbu-backup” in the main “upload” directory of WordPress. This allows for backups to remain in tacked during plugin and CMS upgrades.v
Backup is (x)MB and download is only 1KB
This is most likely due to server permission settings. We are currently working on a clean way to override and road blocks due to poor server permissions. Until then you can manually download any backups using a FTP program of your choice. Please refer to the FAQ above if you do not know where the backups are stored.
“I lost everything!!! It is your fault!”
Although we are happy to help, We (Blackbird Interactive and any developers) take no responsibility for actions done by the user using this plugin. Extreme caution should be taken whenever dealing with any database or files files.
- Upload the
complete-central-backupdirectory to the
/wp-content/plugins/directory or use the built in plugin installer.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- You can find the plugin dashboard by visiting “backup” tab
- What happened to the restore feature of the plugin?
We have removed the restore feature for the time being. If you find yourself in need of a restore, you can use phpMyAdmin to do so.
I really don’t see the point in having a backup plugin that does not have a restore function. The whole point of it is to make it easy for a wordpress user to back up their site and restore it if something goes wrong.
