Does Not Work.
By ,

Very rarely will I give a less than stellar review. This doesn't work. I did a screen save vid showing that I enter info into filezilla and immediately connects as ftp. Put the same info into Vaultpress, and it says it cannot connect. Vaultpress does not work even to connect to server as ftp. I show in my screen save vid that this is for a cpanel account.

Spoke with GoDaddy Managed Hosting. Rep reports that Vaultpress does not work to do alternate site restore into GoDaddy Managed Hosting. Creates fatal errors. Does not work. So, in a fix trying to do the same function into Cpanel account, Vaultpress does not work and does not connect to cpanel via ftp when filezilla immediately connects using of course the same ftp entries.

Just does not work. Ppl need to rely on things that work for restoration. And, it doesn't work.

Should take 5 minutes to restore to alternative site via cpanel since this doesn't work for GoDaddy Managed Hosting. And ftp connect doesn't work even into cpanel. ????

Broke my website badly, took my time

The irony of this is almost too much to bear. I got Vaultpress working well, then Automatic does an automatic update to WordPress, and my site is so broken I can't even login. Took me a few hours to narrow it down to AutomaticVaultpress.

Now, with another upgrade to 4.3 I thought I'd give it another try. I deleted all but a few simple plugins, then fired up Vaultpress. Broke the site again!

Vaultpress offered to attempt trouble shoot if I gave them server access. No way am I going to hand out server access to random individuals.

Time to cut bait.


Not great
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is my personal experience and opinion and is without prejudice.

I signed up and paid for a year and when I needed to restore a backup yesterday it didn't work.

I did two restores, the first one missed out recent content and the theme and the second restore I did from the same restore point, did put back the theme but missed out big chunks of content.

It seems to me that backups are not being created in full for some or most of the time.

Personally I wish I hadn't ever bother with it or wasted my money on it and I am definitely looking for an alternative. The soon I get rid of this, the better.
