trop de bugs
By ,

Je ne sais pas si c'est une incompatibilité avec la dernière dernier wordpress, mais ça marche vraiment trés mal. Je souhaite faire des sauvegardes journalières hebdo, mensuelles, seules les journalières fonctionnent. J'ai pris l'option payante pour une copie Dropbox, il y a trés peut de paramètres à régler mais ça ne marche pas, ma Dropbox reste vide. Et le support reste silencieux. Pas d'alertes, ni rapport de bugs, ni d'explications, pour l'interface tout va bien, sauf que les backups ne sont pas fait.

It do not work
By ,

The program has worked for over 6 hours. So now I have stopped it and removed the plugin from the website. Perhaps it's because the amount of data is too large.

Great plugin, unless you try to extend it.

The plugin is great out of the box if you just need a simple backup solution. As long as you aren't trying to do anything even semi-advanced, this will probably work wonders for you.

But anything advanced, and you're screwed.

We bought the pro version and had expected to start rolling it out with new sites. We would build our own little plugin that just preconfigures the--- NOPE!!

The code is a joke. There aren't any action hooks or filters to speak of, and none of the templates are customizable. Every single variable, class, or option key is extremely convoluted. You have to backtrack through 5-10 functions/classes to find the original value.

In fact, we were about to just ignore that fact and deal with it. But our backup server is behind a custom port.

The FTP addon doesn't let you change the port. WHY? Not even with a filter! The only thing you can do is edit the plugin, and then you better not try to update the plugin!

It's unbelievable how disappointing the code quality is.

ALSO! The FTP plugin is misleading. It offers to store a maximum of X backups when you edit the FTP settings. But it also tells you it won't remove old backups. What is the setting for then? This is the FTP settings, not the backup settings! http://i.imgur.com/4vdCgq7.jpg

Good when it worked but poor support.
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin has worked well for over a year but a recent upgrade stopped it from working at all. The support process initially seemed to be handled quite quickly but progress then slowed significantly and gaps of a week (and more) started to appear in the response trail.

Despite giving the support team admin access to our site (as well as FTP rights by our site hosts), it is now more than TWO MONTHS later and the fault still hasn't been identified. Consequently, I haven't been able to make any changes to my site in that time.

Worse still, rather than admit they can't resolve the problem, the support team are clearly stringing matters out by now requesting that I provide information from the plugin files that they still have access rights to.

It's time to find a new backup provider so BackUpWordPress has now been deleted and the 1 star is for the plugins former service. Judging by the report at the plugins own site I'm not alone in my experience as, at the time of writing, only "10 of 31 support threads in the last two months have been resolved".

To many issues with this plugin!
By , for WP 4.2.2

Installed BackUpWordPress plugin on a test server and once Activated the whole server began to bog down. Granted it's not a super computer, it still shouldn't eat up resources like it did.

Wasn't able to delete All the Backup Schedules (Kept clicking delete but it didn't)

Uninstalled BackUpWordPress plugin (slow and to many issues with it)

Gave WP Backup plugin a try and Keeping that one - it has DropBox too!

Stopped working
By , for WP 4.2.1

I used this for a year and a half, and then it just stopped working. Every time I go to the page, I need to reset from manual to attempt to get the backups going again, but it doesn't work. Wrote to support several times, never heard back.

Its profanity deleted
By , for WP 4.2.2

By , for WP 4.2.2

I have used this plugin for loads of sites however more recently for all of the sites I maintain it's not working properly; cron jobs aren't getting fired properly - doesn't matter what I try it's become totally defunct.

By , for WP 4.1

Each time you get an update - there is a problem. Currently does not work for automatic or manual backup.
