Keep your valuable WordPress website, its media and database backed up to Dropbox in minutes with this sleek, easy to use plugin. Need help? Please em
Works fine, thanks!
Just one warning: if you change many files on your site, it takes plenty of server resources to do the backup, to the point that the server provider may ask to upgrade.
I ended up with the following protocol:
I use Dropbox syncing application on my home comp.
I let the plugin handle minor updates to the site (a few files + any DB changes).
In case I do a major change on my live site (a major upgrade to WP or change in a large plugin), I run rsync to synchronize the Dropbox directory on my home comp with my site. The Dropbox application synchronizes then it with Dropbox; after that the plugin just backs up the database.
One of the plugins I now install on every site :)
After trying another "best free" backup app that not only didn't work but has yet to refund my money, I found myself peeved and hunting for an alternative solution.
With the free version of WPB2D installed, I ran into a minor hiccup and contacted the programmer. He responded quickly and walked me through a variety of known issues. I found the culprit and got things working, so I bought the compression and email add-ons.
Everything's working great and I'm pleased.
Does what is says and works great!
I used to use some other free backup ones to try access dropbox. This is the only one that has consistently worked and just gets the job done.
Its a little slower then some of the other ones, but I deal with over 10 sites and so far the backups have been rock solid.
Installation and configuration are simple enough.
The first backup can take a little while, since the plugin does a file-by-file backup. but subsequent backups are only the database (uncompressed SQL) and changed / added files.
But once it's set up, it gets to work. There are premium plugins if you need additional functionality (like zipping files), but the out-of-the-box "free" version works great. Thanks for a great plugin.
This is one of those plugins that is a must-install on every site I work on. It's the easiest way to backup your entire site to somewhere off the server without having to pay for a license. Saves me a lot of work scheduling manual cron jobs or the old way of emailing backups.
This plugin is a must-have if you want to backup your website to a Dropbox account. Before using this plugin, I backup my sites manually weekly and that takes a lot of time.
Now, I can relax and have the backed up version of my site in my local computer since I have my PC and Dropbox account synced.
Awesome plugin, no more worrying about backups and hosting issues.
The communication problems with support gone a month ago, and now I must to say this plugin is only one which is really works, not overwhelmed with settings and uploads my 1.5 GB site as fast as possible. I not joking, 1.5 GB with all materials (I have 72 GB Dropbox space). The only one thing now looks problematic, site ls less responsive while ZIP-ped backup upload process not finished. If you not use ZIP, the site will not show any slow-downs. And, if someone decided to purchase, please not forget the software registered to domain name. In case you develop site locally and not in fully-isolated sandbox with real domain names and fake DNS to this sandbox, software will be registered to your site-dev.company-dev.com or something address and refused to work after moving to real domain.
