mk Simple Backups

Allows you to create simple backups on a dedicated page nested in the "Tools" Menu.

On a page within the "Tools" Submenu, you'll find a simple form which lets you choose the ingredients of a current Backup:

  • Uploads (either by scanning your Upload Directory, or by fetching Attachments from your Database)
  • Active Theme (and its parent theme, if used)
  • SQL-Dump containing the Mysql Database
  • A list of active Plugins

Backups will be stored within a folder in wp-content and be downloadable from the Backend. Once the downloads are finished, the backup files on the Server can be flushed.

What's good:

  • Simple: Choose what is included in your Backup and download the resulting ZIP Archive from your Backend
  • Unobtrusive: It's nested within the "Tools" submenu and comes without any bling bling, following default WP Backend Styles
  • Lightweight: 28KB zipped, 72KB unzipped

The plugin author does not take any responsibility for the safety of your data or the integrity of the generated backups.


This plugin uses 2createStudio's shuttle export Script for SQL Export: https://github.com/2createStudio/shuttle-export
