This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



PressBackup is the easiest plugin available for backing up your wordpress site automatically.

This plugin allows your wordpress blog administrator to schedule backups of your entire site, restore backups, and migrate your site in the event of your server failure or moving.

PressBackup is free to use, but you must create a PressBackup account.


  • Sufficient disk space to store the temporary zip of your site.
  • GZip extension or zip app via shell
  • Curl extension (php safe mode off)


To restore the backups you need to change permissions of ”wp-content” folders subfolders and files to 777 (read and write for all).
Once PressBackup finish with the restore proccess will change permission back to original values

Please be careful about doing a restore from a previous version of WordPress if you have upgraded WordPress core files between backups.
We cannot ensure a smooth transition between each upgrade.

We also recommend running a manual backup now after each upgrade you perform
