Schedule complete automatic backups of your WordPress installation. Decide which content will be stored (Dropbox, S3…). This is the free version
Backuping a site is the most important thing a webmaster should do. This plugin do it for you. Install it, set it up and you'll never heard about it anymore (except if you need to restore !).
An excellent backup plugin.
it can schedule time and create multiple istances
I use this plugin for many years now, I install it in every site I work with.
And tonight, it saved my life for the first time.
Thank you guys <3
A backup plugin which doesn't have a RESTORE OPTION?! What is the use of that..it's like having a car that does not go in reverse! It is useless..I've spent 20 minutes learning how to use this plugin,configuring it and creating a backup, only to realize I can't restore my site from created backup?? You're lucky I didn't delete my site before realizing that!
I agree with RickC4: if there were zero stars you would get zero.
installed and it's works like a charme
I really liked this plugin due to its sync with Dropbox. It worked fine for a while but then started behaving badly.
Unfortunately, despite two support requests logged, chasing back and being patient for about 3 months, I got absolutely no response whatsoever.
I therefore had to delete this plugin and found another one (Updraft Plus) which does the same and is actually much easier to set up. However, it is slower than BackWPUp.
In the end I had though to go away from BackWPUp as I really needed a functioning backup plugin.
I was given a backup of a site made with this plugin and disappointed to find no restore option.
I searched the web and found loads of posts of people with the same problem.
Anyone who has done any kind of IT work will tell you a backup is USELESS without a rapid means to restore.
I have used BackupBuddy which is OK, albeit that it struggles with very large sites and it is a cinch to restore, it also makes it easy to restore to a dev sub domain
So now I have to rip the backwpup backup file apart, restore the database, hope that the standard WP_ prefix was used or else inspect the DB to figure out then go edit all the parts that refer to the old site domain.
Probably half a days work in that alone and only then if it goes smoothly.
If there were zero stars you would get zero.
I would not recommend anyone uses this plugin
Seriously: thanks. It's amazing to have this tool, and for free.
