- Plugin Requirements
In addition to the standard WordPress requirements, the myRepono WordPress Backup plugin requires that your PHP
allow_url_fopenconfiguration option is set to
on, or that the PHP curl and optionally the OpenSSL extension libraries are installed. The myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin includes a CURL Extension Emulation Library which the plugin will use if alternate HTTP/HTTPS connection methods fail, therefore PHP CURL support may not be required. The myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin can only be used on web accessible servers which the myRepono.com system can connect to, the plugin will notify you if your are not using a web accessible server.
The myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin is frequently and thoroughly tested with WordPress versions, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3.x, 3.4.x, 3.5.x, 3.6.x, 3.7.x, 3.8.x, 3.9.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.x, 4.2.x and 4.3.x.
- Is the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin compatible with a WordPress Multisite/Network installation?
Yes, the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin is compatible with WordPress Multisite/Network installations, and will enable you to backup your complete WordPress Multisite/Network installation with only a single installation of the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin (or API).
myRepono will backup your WordPress files and databases without any interaction with WordPress – the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin is essentially an interface for myRepono which automates the API setup process and which gives you a basic management system as part of your WordPress administration panel.
This means myRepono can backup a WordPress multisite/networks installation in the same way as a standard single-site installation – to the myRepono API it’s just files and databases.
The key limitation to this is that since a WordPress multisite/network installation requires changes to the server’s Apache configuration, those changes would not be automatically restored by myRepono unless they were managed using a .htaccess file or an Apache configuration file which can be backed-up by your myRepono API.
We have used myrepono in the past but the restoration process took forever. A 300mb website took over an hour to restore, when asked they said it was the connection speed which I don’t buy.
The back system would fail on some hosting providers.
Everything is stored as packets, so you can’t easily download the database or just files.
With all the other backup solutions, I can’t recommend myrepono. Better off going with an S3 backup solution.
I’ve used this plugin and service for years now and in more than one occasion it’s been a life-saver, literally! The plugin is smoother than ever for setting up new sites and the prices are extremely reasonable and competitive – much cheaper than most other services. It’s nice to know that all my sites are backed up and I love how I can easily specify the frequency that I want them backed up. Also, I can see by the backups how much space-creep my sites are engaging in.

The myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin now allows you to hide the myRepono backup status box which is shown in the header of the WordPress administration panel, the backup status box will also adapt it’s position based on your WordPress version. The myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin has also been updated to maintain a copy of the ‘myrepono_config.php’ API configuration file between plugin upgrades (this file only exists if you have customised your myRepono API configuration).
