As others have said, it didn't do anything. Just sat there for hours and never completed after several attempts. Other backup plug-ins worked. It's a shame because I see the other good reviews and wonder why it won't work on my WP site.
It doesn't do anything, remains on "starting backup" for 2 hours, just for a 2MB database back up.
Strike 1: How do I restore my site from a backup? Quote: "You need to download the latest backup file either by clicking download on the backups page or via...". Wrong: "Download" option does not exist, only the 'Delete' option exists. Yes, you can restore your database using phpmyadmin, but you don't need this plugin to do that.
Strike 2: Extremely slow response on my WordPress Dashboard.
With hundreds of backup plugins available, two strikes and your deleted.
All plugin functionality has been blocked for me. I have an absurd amount of free space, and the plugin thinks it's not enough to make a backup, so it simply doesn't allow me to.
Here is the error it gives me:
Your server only has 11 GB of disk space left which probably isn't enough to complete a backup. Try deleting some existing backups or other files to free up space.
Could not get the BackUpWordPress plugin to run on 2 different hosts with the help of Human Made Limited's very responsive support person. Would have liked to use this plugin, because the management features were well organized.
I made a backup and after a direct recover I get the message:
unable to connect to my database
I did check my wp-config.php and my dbase in my siteadmin and the settings are ok.
So this program messed up my complete website.
i have all paid addons for this plugin bought, but every time developer update it break functionality, disabling updates:
An error occurred while updating BackUpWordPress To Google Drive: Download failed. Internal Server Error
customer support is done by third party named Kati, who is not a developer and reply that she will contact developer on every message we send
as of today, i have 60 web sites with broken backup plugins, uploads to Dropbox and Gdrive fell every time.
by far the worst plugin and service i ever received!
2016 I give up! the plugin worked great in 2015 and since the last update; no need to make me believe that it works because I lost time to believe the statements of each other because it DOES NOT WORK. I uninstall!
When I count on it it does not work properly... The same this time, I needed my DB but noticed that the last one was made successfully a month ago...
I have had this plug in for about 6 months and through several plug in and WP versions. I setup daily (dbase only), weekly (full), monthly (full) backups.
The daily dbase backups seemed to work for a couple of months, then just stopped; the weekly/monthly backups never worked...not once. I use a standard setup, I would say, with Godaddy and Cpanel - nothing that should be out of the ordinary really.
I did a bit of research to try to see if there was a simple fix, but did not find anything. Very disappointed as it seemed to have just the features I was hoping for.
