Support » Plugin: BackUpWordPress » Simple Backup that works Great for Local Server

  • Yes there are many other plugins but after testing several and wanting only a simple solution for a few clients where basic backups were needed to the localhost/local server with a no frills approach I found that BackupWordpress was one of the best. CPanel does have a nice wizard for backups but for some basic WordPress users (clients) that seems a bit much, and setting up a Cron job is also a good option too which I do use in some cases but this is a great alternative too if you want the backup operation to be managed within the WP gui environment!

    Free options include:

    – Choice of DB &/or Website Files
    – Scheduling
    – Auto Deletion
    – Email Notification
    – Custom Path to any directory on the local server via wp-config.php
    define( ‘HMBKP_PATH’, ‘/direct-path-from-root-to-destination/’ );
