Great life saver
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin has been wonderful for us, tech support is fantastic. we had a hacker on one of our sites. With in 10 mins we were up and running again and had resolved the security issue without this backup plugin it would have taken a long time to resolve matters.

Better than others

Working fine, working as per the need. I am using it for Disha - Inspiration, career and guidance and working great.

Impressed with the ease of use
By , for WP 4.5.3

I'm someone who manages/updates a website but isn't a professional web designer/developer so can find the more technical side of web development tricky. The free version of this plugin therefore was a huge help to me - very simple and easy to use and I was able to download our files with no problem whatsoever. Thanks guys!

Cool Plugin - Thanks WPBackItUp

Awesome plugin! Simply it works!

Incredible backup tool
By , for WP 4.5.3

I have been using WPBackItUp for almost one year now and it is simply the best. It does exactly what it should, reliably, smoothly and quickly. There is no advertising or sales pitch either. In fact, no headache at all, only peace of mind.

plugin timed out then 500 internal server error
By , for WP 4.5.3

Brand new site, everything up-to date. When I clicked the 'backup' button the plugin started chugging away...and timed out. Internal server error. Had to delete the plugin manually from plugin directory and it took the site another few minutes to come back up.

Super nice!

Even the free version offers a flexible and great working solution, congrats!
I will register soon, I need to set up a few sites first.

Not impressed
By , for WP 4.5.3

Free version doesn't do automatic back-ups - lost the data from one of my sites.

My recommendation? Don't use it. There are many other, better ones out there. I.e. updraft, etc

3mins job and done!

One click, 3 minutes! Thast how long it took me to back everything up!

Great plugin!

Great manual backup tool - but can be automated
By , for WP 4.5.2

I use on three of my sites. So far, I've not had to restore a backup so I haven't tested that out yet, but the tool itself works pretty seamlessly. If you go pro, you can schedule your backups so you don't have to click anything. Hmm... might need to go pro! Great tool, well worth using (and definitely needed as WordPress continues to update making some plugins crash your site!).
