Simple Backup

Simple Tools to Optimize and Backup Your WordPress Website.

Simple Backup Plugin for WordPress can backup and download your WordPress website and MySQL Database. Plugin can also optionally perform many common optimizations to wordpress and MySQL Database before backup.

Requires linux style server with tar, gzip, bzip or zip for backup file creation. The plugin uses mysqldump for consistent and reliable database backups.

This plugin will create a directory in the root of your WordPress directory called 'simple-backup' to store the backup files. If the plugin can not locate or create the directory you will receive an error message and may have to create the directory manually, the directory will also need to be writeable by the web server so you may need to chmod it.

Upgrade to Simple Backup Ultra for advanced features including:

  • Schedule Automatic WordPress Backups
  • Scheduled Automatic WordPress and Database Optimizations
  • Receive email notification of the scheduled backup status
  • Lifetime Priority Support and Update License
