Fantastic Backup Solution
By , for WP 4.0

Backup plugins tend to be a bit hit or miss depending on your set up. I have tried all of the main WordPress backup solutions and have found backwpup to be the most versatile and robust. I now use it on the majority of the websites I manage.

Better than Backup Buddy
By , for WP 4.0

I've used this and backup buddy and I prefer this everytime. Its easy to use, free to deploy and well supported. Its standard with all my frameworks and every client has this installed.

Thanks for the hard work guys.

Solid plugin with just the right features!
By , for WP 4.0

I've tried lots of backup plugins but this one has quickly become my preferred free option. It's proven to work reliably with many different WordPress sites on many different servers and has just the right features to make it powerful but simple. There's no backup to Google Drive option in the free version so I usually use Dropbox.

My chosen Backup Solution
By , for WP 4.0

Pretty much the first or second plugin I install on any site that I care about. Gives me much needed piece of mind!

Works fine

After some adjustments on IIS works fine, thank you.

Heavy MultiSite: works fast, backs everything up, and on MY schedule
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin was recommended by my host.
After issues with other backup plugins - like grinding the entire back-end down using up resources. Red lining the cPanel stats. No control over scheduling each site's b-u.

My MultiSite is heavy.
Because I have a large main site and a LOT of stuff, stuff going on, plugins, plugin dependent functions. But only 6 sites so far. I designate big plug-in dependent functions to separate sites.

-Main site:70 pages
-500 PDF docs to preview and download, via a plugin
-lots of plugins and their related stuff
-tons of unused plugins

It works fast, is complete-all elements of my sites in some form, easy to configure and contrary to other big plugins I can do one single network back-up plus schedule without paying.

It is exceptional:
-Having Dropbox, etc. a must have. Not just a download, or host option.
-The plugin list alone is huge for me.
(I would have to figure out which are activated, and where.)
-XML file is awesome, I will have the impossible to replicate stuff intact.
It can be sent to WP.com if all else fails. I have tried to export one from a failing site before.
-Database table thing, also awesome. Another less hassle, and something I do not want to do - user error damage potential.

I have not had to restore. I have great confidence that given the complete backup of all my network sites - I would find enough to salvage to help with a ground up rebuild.

Thank you for your work in developing and maintaining this important plugin.
