Total Backup

Description

This plugin backs up a whole WordPress site and its database into a zip file.

Click the “Site Backup” button to start the backup.
While backing up, the site is in the maintenance mode.
Completed with no problem, the back up files are listed up.
Backing up is a kind of heavy process, so too many files may cause timeout errors.

PHP5 Required.
