Untrustworthy and Unusable
By , for WP 4.0

Missing content without errors. That makes this the worst kind of problem! You could potentially pass a site to a client never knowing that text and/or images are completely missing. On top of that, the plugin creator has disappeared from the support forums for over six months.

Excellent backup and cloning tool
By , for WP 4.0.1

Well thought.
Sad there is no support (yet ?) for multisite. A little modification would allow at least to enable cloning a site sharing an SQL DB with others using table prefixing ( which I admit is not a fancy idea but current practice at some providers), since the table prefix used is site-wide and available in the global variable $prefix . Currently all tables are backed up irrespective of prefix, allowing to inadvertently transport data which may be confidential.

This has got to be the best plugin ever. I truly would be lost without it. The amount of time this saves me you wouldn't believe!

Fantastic Plugin!
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin is excellent. I use it to backup my wordpress installs, also I have used it to move wordpress to different servers on multiple occasions. The only time I have had difficulty is with sites that are hundreds of MB in size, in that case you can simply exclude the media folder to reduce the size.

One problem, I have had on a couple of occasions is the domain name not being updated to the new domain correctly, I'm not sure why as it usually does work.

Keep up the good work, this plugin is much appreciated and has saved me a lot of time trying to manually move WP.



Does not work as advertised

I have a 52mb clone that will not restore.
All i receive is a blank screen after clicking restore. Not even any errors.

My choice for migrating sites
By , for WP 4.0

This is my choice for migrating sites from local or online test servers to their final destinations. While there are many plugins for backup, few of them offer such an easy restore procedure as this one.

Issues that I encounter are usually caused by some of my clients' servers, with low memory and issues with large file transfers. However, the plugin gives the option to only export the database, which I've found to be the answer in most cases, and then all I have to do is copy the wp-content through ftp.

Very rarely has the plugin itself given me any headaches.
