Works great for multisite
By , for WP 4.2.2

I was looking for a backup solution for multisite and this just works! I'm considering using it for my regular sites as well.

Note that I don't sync it with any backup service.. I just download the backups manually.

Great Tool

I recommend this tool an a regular basis. Works great.

Disappointed in paid Pro version

I usually buy premium plugins as they are generally more robust and I do not have to waist time with bugs and issues. After choosing BackWPUp based on how good their website looked I have had all the usual problems of a free plugin - constant bugs and painful setup processes.

After installing it on 4 different websites each one had to be 'bug fixed' to get it to actually make a backup. Then they had to all be fixed a few weeks later when they failed. There is also no nice way of making it plug into Google Drive (perhaps there is no way for any software to do this but it's very technical

Their support was good - tickets answered within the day. However for a premium plugin I expect to not need support as the developers should have put the time in to make it 'just work'

- Significantly easier Google Drive Setup process
- The standard bugs that get sent back from Google Drive should have 'human' error messages with a link to a guide on the BackWPUp site taking you through how to fix that specific bug. Most of the issues have been with my Google Drive setup and if I was a Google Pro I would have been able to fix these easily (however myself and most people are not)
- '1 click backup' feature (there's heaps of questions even in the Wizard version of the setup)

Support is as good as the plugin!

Excellent job Daniel Hüsken! Not only does the plugin work really well, but you respond to questions!

Works perfectly. For a free backup utility, I can't imagine what's not to like.

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 !).
Great job.

Effective and very flexible

An excellent backup plugin.

  • It lets you create multiple jobs; each job can have different content, different destination &/or different frequency.
  • You can choose db &/or file
  • the choice of "files" is whichever subset that suits you
  • caters for many destinations.
  • you can copy and edit jobs
Very good!
