This plugin is simply outstanding and so is the support.The owner Chris is amazingly helpful and professional. If you need a back up plugin do not look any further! this is all you will need.
Thank you so much Chris for all your hard work and dedication.

I accidentally deleted components of my site while doing some maintenance, thankfully I had installed WPBackitup and I was able to restore my site with the click of one button!!!!


The followup and support has also be amazing.

Ill be using it on all wordpress sites I build.

Even though I was on the Lite backup version (paid no money), when I had a challenge with a few error messages (now corrected), not only did Chris promptly reply to my email to his company, but he *thoroughly* responded (i.e., he gave me the 'fix' WITH step by step clear instructions). In this world of doing just average (if that), I found Chris going way way above average (exceptional, really). He even followed up after a few days of no response back from me, inquiring in a gentle (not pushy) way for my feedback, like he wanted to know if it worked for me (he made it easy for me to hear his need and to connect with his request for feedback). . Bottom line? A company's Customer Service for me is as-- if not more-- important than the product itself. My initial contact with Chris and his company was great and it would be 6 stars if they offered six. Paul

OK but nothing exciting

We paid for this and tested it for over a year putting up with minor problems and bugs along the way, and offering suggestions. The author always responded and corrected problems, although the downtime was an issue.
We ended up discontinuing the product due to ongoing increasing costs that were not part of the original purchase or agreement.

We did end up finding and using some free products that worked much better, BACKWPUP for backup. And several very good site site movers, DUPLICATOR, ALL IN ONE WP MIGRATION. Check out the free offerings before laying out your money.

I have been using WP Backitup for a couple of months. I initially started with the free backup only version. I had to do a migration and the is plugin did the job. This plugin saved my life yesterday. I deleted some files on my WP site and also updated a theme. I could not get back into WP so i decided to wipe my site, re-install plain WP and do a restore. The restore took 2 minutes and my site works perfectly. Chris, the developer is pretty awesome as well with his support and response time.

I definitely recommend this plugin.


Plug-in Support Second to None!

I have never received such dedicated support for a plug-in. I was having problems with my backup failing due to processes taking too long to complete. When I explained my situation to Chris Simmons, he quickly responded and offered a solution. When my web host site couldn't resolve my issue, Chris immediately began to work on a solution. He didn't stop until his clients were able to complete their backups. I truly appreciate your dedication and professionalism. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a plug-in to backup their site. Keep providing outstanding service!

Works great and fast

I have had a problem with a different back up plugin. So i tried SEVERAL others and all were not successful. I tried this one and it works like a charm in the LITE version - free. There are limits to the free service but it creates a ZIP file of everything you need. Keep it stored on your server or download it elsewhere. I will definitely keep on using and look forward to more features.

PLUS there's more!
After a few successful back ups over two months (14 times) it failed midway. I contact the author and he immediately started working on a solution. It seems I have some large amounts of photos on my site and that was causing issues. He spent several iterations before he got it to work, but now just before the holidays he fixed an issue impacting me, just one free user. If he was that helpful to me imagine how great he'll be for you! Chris and WPBackItUp rocks 5+ stars
