Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Buggy plugin with horrible customer service

  • Before trying to utilize some html optimization plugin, I made sure to backup everything with this plugin. The results were not as expected so I tried to restore my last backup which was supposedly without any errors, and BOOM, site down and database broken! I had to pay a 3rd person to completely reinstall the database and manually backup from a previous file!

    I asked support on the WP forum, and no one has yet to answer.

    Is there any customer support at all??????

    Sorry to hear that! I can see that someone has now replied to your thread, and it is awaiting your reply.

    N.B. Your support request was on Saturday evening in our timezone, and it was replied to early Monday morning when our office re-opened. We don’t have staff working on Sunday; I think that’s fairly normal. If you’re going to carry out a critical operation and might need need emergency help, I’d definitely not recommend Saturday afternoon as the best time for that.

    Though, I note that you talk about “customer support” and “customer service” – are you a customer? If so, then please do use to ask for support, both because that is what our paid staff prioritise, and because don’t allow people to ask for customer support on their free forums ( – if any of our staff do happen to work late Saturday, they’d definitely be prioritising customers.

    Best wishes,

    It’s true we moderate the forums to make sure customers aren’t being supported here on If you need support and you are a customer, please go directly to the support service on

    Just to note that the logs posted for the support thread showed that the user wasn’t a customer (and had a problem caused by “WP Fastest Cache”).

    Yes David, WP Fastest Cache caused the website to mess up, and then when I tried to backup everything went to hell. Database broken, had to pay a developer to restore it.
