Back-up and restore made easy and efficient
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've been using UpdraftPlus on 3 websites and am pretty happy about it. It's easy to set-up and use. Restore option works great. Thank you to the authors for this great plugin.

One of the best WP backup/restore utilities out their

I have been using UpdraftPlus for about a year now and although I ran into some issues early on with the install process and setting up the plugin to work with my specific host provider's server setup.

I received outstanding technical support and was up and running and I have never looked back. The software is robust, easy to maintain, lots of options and the bottom line, IT WORKS!

Super easy to use with some cool features

Installs pretty easily although a bit of a chore. I bought the premium deal. For me, after installing, I would click on the settings/updraft options, sign in with my creds, then a link appears to download an updated version, I clicked on that and it downloads and updates, then I again go to the settings/updraft options, and click on the link to claim the options that I purchased, another link to update option plugins appears, and those are downloaded. Then I would go again to the options page to verify that all the options are enabled. I then go to the settings/updraft backup settings and choose my schedule, backup to to DropBox, the sub folder in drop box, and save, then it has you link to dropbox to authorize it to save there. All this actually happens pretty quickly and you simply follow the links but that does seem pretty involved. Perhaps there is an easier way I just missed.

The backups are then automatic! I love how I get emails letting me know they completed and are safely in my dropbox. I also love how it automatically backs up before upgrading plugins.

Great - best backup plugin I've used
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is such a good plugin. It's set up to keep our backups in Google Drive, which took a few extra steps to set up, but the instructions and tips made it very clear how to do that. The automatic backups are great.

I just now had to use the restore feature when a theme update had way too many formatting changes (and switching back to the older version of the theme didn't fix those changes.) Instead of having to figure out just what went wrong, I was able to very easily restore the version of the site that I'd backed up right before the update. I'm really impressed by how easy it was; I was expecting things to be a lot more trouble and wouldn't have been surprised if it didn't work quite right.

I was using a different backup plugin for a different site that I manage, but I'm going to switch over to UpdraftPlus for that site as well. I'm really glad I chose to try it out, and I highly recommend it.

Parfait Efficace Instantané

WP DB Manager vient de passer à la corbeille
Il fait des backup mais il est incapable de les relire,

UpDratfPlus sauve tout le site (et pas que les bases) et le restaure en un seul clic,

Il a redressé la situation la ou WP-DBMGR avait perdu tout controle
