Support » Plugin: BackUpWordPress » Excellent backup solution

  • Unlike other plugins, BackUpWordPress uses zip and mysqldump to create backups. Faster and in my opinion far better working than other plugins trying to backup data and having problems with php execution time limit. Backups can be scheduled, which is also very useful when used together with real cronjobs.
    Backups are stored in a folder in wp-content, which contains a random string so bad people cannot easily grab the backup files from your server.
    Backups also contain the .htaccess file, somehow other plugins tend to miss this one.

    Important: Once the backup file is created, get it off the machine. It’s not really a backup before it has been moved. There are extensions which enable you to store them in the cloud. Maybe a bit expensive, but worth every penny in case a broken raid controller destroys all the data on your server.
