Great tool for source control.
By , for WP 4.0

I am working on a final project for a WordPress course and needed good back-up software to use as source control. I am doing a lot of editing to the back-end code and needed a way to revert to the state of the project before I made changes and 'broke' things. WPBackItUp has been very valuable to me.

I have made several back-ups, and have had to restore twice after I changed the code and made a mess of things. WPBackItUp has saved me a ton of work! the back-up and restore processes run smoothly and actually function as advertised.

I am recommending this product to my instructor as a requirement for future classes, as several students have had to start over when they have edited the code incorrectly and couldn't remember exactly what they had done. Source control is good practice, and WPBackItUp made this easy.

Excellent Backup

This plugin is an excellent product. I migrated a 500 page website to another server. The backup and restore functions were accurate and fast.

If you have any problem with the plugin, the support is very quick and comprehensive.

Worked flawlessly when I needed it
By , for WP 4.1.1

FABULOUS! Great program. It is RARE that any backup program works as promised when you are desperate and actually need to test it. I needed this. It worked. This program restored my WP database and I am 100% happy. The directions on how to manually restore the database backup in MySQL were clear, detailed, thoughtful and easy to follow. Delivered the goods. WordPress and all the plugin updates are quirky enough to give anyone a headache. This free program is amazing. Get it and use it often. The inexpensive upgrade is good insurance. I will now buy the upgrade version. It is well worth it for the convenience of a one button instant restore.

Great Plugin and Exceptional Support
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin saved me heaps of time, more importantly the support provided was exceptional - above and beyond. Used this plugin to restore a backup of my website to enable a rebuild.

Chris thanks so much for everything.

Worked great!

I used the plugin to backup my site - backup worked great. I had been looking for a while for a backup tool that would save the .sql database file and this plugin does it!

I also used the premium upgrade to "restore" the backup. Worked like a charm when I moved the site from my old server to a new wordpress installation. Only minor hiccups with easy fixes (which I think were my own error). I have never moved a WP site so easily (mysql database, files, images, themes, plugins).

A life saver!

This plug in is unobtrusive, plays nicely with others and works seamlessly with the latest version of wordpress, is very user friendly . It was a real Hero when I got the white screen of death for some inexplicable reason recently. The ounce of prevention that stood between me, a lot of annoyed site members. I highly recommend it.

Great Back-Up Plug-In

Just starting to use it, but it seems really easy ... especially for someone who is a bit of an old newbee. Keep up the good work and spread the word.

Love it!

This plugin is super easy to use and does the job! I became a paid subscriber after I needed to move my website. Using this app made it super easy.

I've also gotten great support the few times I've emailed in. I would recommend this plugin to anyone.

Essential, helpful, and so supportive
By , for WP 4.1

I have been using the free version of WPBackItUp to back up multiple sites and the process has been smooth and easy. I've also run a test restore of one site so I know the backups are reliable. I have peace of mind that the data are secure.

With the latest version, I had a problem downloading backup files, and Chris was responsive, efficient, and very helpful. Most paid services don't offer customer support as effective and pleasant as this, let alone ones with a free version.

serious problems.

From the first minute I installed this plugin I ran into problems such as

Error: (125) Unable to compress your backup because there is no zip utility available. Please contact support
