Support » Plugin: All-in-One WP Migration » Export vs Backup?

  • Resolved Jon Fuller


    Is there any documentation that discusses the difference between an Export and a Backup? I realize the Backup will remain in the list, and that the Export offers more control of the output file. But assuming the “Export” settings weren’t touched: how does an Export differ from a Backup?

  • Hi! from my experience, backing up will “backup” everything on the fly, while export lets you select what do you want to export from a list… files, plugins, database. etc…

    Hope it helps 🙂

    The export process gives you options to exclude certain content. Backups are generally done and restored faster than exports.
    An export can be a backup if advanced options have not been used. This might change in the future to increase the performance of creating and restoring backups.
