5 stars plugin
A "must-have" on your plugin toolset for your wordpress sites. Dropbox integration and similar ones really help on the recovering backups really faster and easier.
I'm a professional WordPress dev and I use this on all my sites for backing up. It's easy to restore a backup, but the format (if you download) is also clean and straightforward (some backup plugins allow you to restore, but use their own format, so downloads are useless). I set all clients up with automated backups and it just works...no hassle.
I just started a self-hosted blog using WordPress, UpDraftPlus made it incredibly easy to backup both my database & files to my Google Drive account.
I was afraid my lack of knowledge would make things harder but it didn't. I can now mess around with WordPress without too much stress if I have to restore my website to a previous state.
Love the fact that I can schedule back ups every day :)
I'm a professional web dev and I use this on all my sites for backing up. I have just one comment. For busy sites, WP's cron is very inefficient. Disabling it can be the difference between crashing or staying online and Updraft relies on WP cron. I would appreciate instructions on a more preformant way to trigger scheduled backups and support "back up now".
wish they would allow me to set custom subdirectory in Gdrive with free version...but given what i get already for free i cant really complain.
database intervals could be lower (4h) loss in an onlineshop could be quite frustrating....
restored several times with no issues.
Great plugin! Love it that the free version also includes automatic backups sent to remote storage. Good work. Also some interesting addons for example for cloning/migrating.
We use to back-up remotely (off-server). Have used a full restore in more than one instance. Generally it is reliable and very easy to configure.
Such a great plugin for making automatic backups and storing them offsite. I bought the Migrator add-on as well, which makes it a breeze to create test sites and do restores, even on large sites. Support has always been fast, thorough, and friendly. I've been using both for more than a year and wouldn't be without. Can't recommend enough!
