Sits there and does nothing
By , for WP 4.5.3

And also shows '14 minutes ago' (the work of taking backup had started) on hover!
Actually I should give it a five star rating - you can use it to troll somebody, to play some kind of prank - endless possibilities :D

Rating revised happily - plugins create a shit load of problems all the time, nothing unusual about that- what really matters is how the person behind it deals with the complaints ;)

This is embarrassing! The four star rating is not showing!!

Copy the base instead of the whole site

sometimes instead of copying the site and the base - only copies the database

Muy util para realizar Backups de nuestro wp. Lo más importante, que es facil de usar y programable!

Usefull and very nice automatic backup
By , for WP 4.4.2

Just made one back now.
If nothing to worry about because of automatic backup, what more do you want.

Well, what I should want is that the backup is not stored in the WP-directory but in a file one can choose. This because if the WP-directory is damaged, the back-up cannot be reached.

But very nice plugin.

Backup process seems to be running endlessly
By , for WP 4.1.6

I am using Backupwordpress ver 3.4.3 for my site and have around 1 GB of data - files + database. I am having a peculiar problem that when I run the backup process either manual or schedule the process is never ending even after 15+ hours of running, as the 'backing files' indication is on. I also find there is a zipped folder in the backup folder but there is also a file by name '.backup-1454384997-running' in the backup folder.

If I cancel this backup process, then all the backed folder is deleted.

I would like to know how to resolve this problem and therefore would appreciate your early response.

I need to very urgently take backup of my site.

Regards,
Ram

Very Helpful Plugin

Have been using this plugin for years now, thought it time to give it the credit it deserves! I sleep better at night knowing I have a backup for incase....:-) thank you!

A useful backup tool
By , for WP 4.2.4

A great tool to automatically backup your WordPress.
It saved my ass my times.

BUT...

Yesterday, I did a complete backup, and needed to restore it a few hours later.
The most recent complete backup contained an old database backup... if it wasn't for my web host, two months of work would have been thrown away.

It's a great tool, but you should definitely ALWAYS check the date on the SQL file before restoring a backup.

For this reason, it gets a 4/5

Good Backup Plugin

I have been using this plugin for over a month and it backup my all site content plus database with simple one click option. However some times it did throw some kind of Zip archive error, and I really don't khnw why..But over excellent job. Keep up your work

Best of the Breed, But...
By , for WP 4.4.1

I do like this plug in a lot, but I have trouble getting the "complete weekly"s to happen. The dailys seem to go ok, but I have to "run now" to get the complete weekly backups to happen...
