really nice plugin
By , for WP 4.5.3

i used it for my music video website for africans and its very effective

Simple. Efficient. Effective.
By , for WP 4.5.3

Allows you to quickly and easily backup the database, your files, or both, on a schedule or immediately. Adding a unique backup location requires editing your wp-config file, but once configured, works well. I'm not using it to backup to remote locations or the cloud, but that's a paid option.

Support has so far been excellent the two times I had issues. Patched releases came out quickly and resolved the issues.

Highly recommended.

SAVED!
By , for WP 4.5.3

Easy to find the plugin when activated. Its under Tools - good placement.
My site is a static site so chose MANUAL in their settings rather than have timed scheduled ones. The backup saved to my wordpress content folder in my server and I had the option to also download it as a .zip to my harddrive.
Settings allowed me to backup the Database & Files or each separately. I have no need to use their 'excludes' option.
I've not had to use the functionality of repopulating the site yet! PHEW! Here's their great instructions on how to upload your site from their backup. Feel this link should be available in their description https://bwp.hmn.md/support-center/restore-backup/
Thanks for this fantastic plugin.

Fast and easy

Easy to configure and simple, but enough powerful to cover daily backups and weekly full backups. Really good plugin!

Good for common web
By , for WP 4.5.3

I need only simple weekly backup but where I can set a day and time when it should happen. I tried UpdraftPlus which has such basic setting in the paid version. BackUpWordPress has it.
The only note - when you want something to exclude then you must at first create a backup task and then you can exclude (not inside of setting of this task), what is a little confusing.

a very good program
