    Your website’s Pre-Sales Questions form prevented me from submitting my questions, maybe because of the code examples. Therefore, I’m asking my pre-sales questions here:

    I’ve been using BackupBuddy, Duplicator and All-in-One backup plugins. Each have their strengths and faults. I’m a professional WordPress developer and have many sites on different kinds of servers. Some servers have PHP 5.x, Apache and MySQL. Other sites PHP 7.0.x, MariaDb and NGINX.

    Q1: How does Updraft accommodate backup + restore between WordPress sites on thise different configurations?

    In this scenario, I have an Ubuntu server with ISPconfig (control panel) where each website is located in folders such as the following:
    /var/www/clients/client5/web16/web

    Therefore, in my WP-CONFIG.PHP file I need to add the following code to enable my DigitalAccessPass (DAP) membership plugin to work correctly:
    if(!defined(‘SITEROOT’))
    define(‘SITEROOT’,’/var/www/clients/client5/web16/web’);

    When I migrate to my other server, where I’m using Virtualmin (control panel) or the Local by Flywheel development hosting environment, I need to change this code in WP-CONFIG.PHP to something like:
    if(!defined(‘SITEROOT’))
    define(‘SITEROOT’,’/app/public’);

    Q2: Changing that code is a manual process, so far. Does Upgraft help to automate such changes to WP-CONFIG.PHP? How would I complete such a backup with Updraft?

    My DAP membership plugin has its own database tables, each table starting with the prefix “dap_” instead of “wp_”. So I need to backup both WordPress and DAP tables.
    Q3: Does Updraft fully automate backup and restore of WordPress plus other database tables (such as the DAP tables)? Does this work with your Migration features so I can just go into the destination site, paste the Updraft code and migrate without needing to use http://FTP...

    Q4: I’m seeking to have your Clone/Migration features to quickly copy or migrate sites to my other servers or development environments. Can all of the above be done using your Clone/Migrate features without any manual code editing or adjustments?

    A5: If “yes” to Q4, What add-ons do I need? What are my costs?

    Thank you.
