This WordPress backup plugin crashed my site in about 30 minutes after installing - and I can't even log into my website. My host said it created database issues and changed my FTP user password. He told me he has seen this before as well. I don't have the latest version of WP installed and it could be possible it was just not compatible. Use with caution. We worked on updating the information that it changed. I was told to wait 20 minutes then try again to log in to my site. So I hope it did not permanently crash my site. I am uninstalling if I can get back in:-(
I want only one thing from a backup - that is - if I need to restore, I need it to be there!
This backs up correctly for an easy restore.
I backuped the site, then tried to upload in the new domain, but beside the first page (home) any other page in the menu I click it goes to older domain url. So, what I need to do to correct each page's opens in new domain.
thank you for your help
when other backup plugins fail to work on a site, this plugin always comes through and works great. simple interface, easy to work and configure. just works.
That's what I was looking for. I'm logged into my WordPress websites frequently. I don't usually log into any of my cPanels (control panels), unless I have to, to set up or fix something. So to log into cPanel just to make a backup is just a hassle. This plugin resolves that issue for me. I will be logging into cPanel much less now, thanks to Austin Matzko.
does not work with WP3.9.1
I have been using WordPress Database Backup and it’s really one of those must have WP plugins. Thanks for making it! I'm glad he now has the option for weekly emails with backups because some of my smaller sites do not need backups as often. It's rare that I would give a 5 star rating but this deserves it!
This small plugin does everything that I want, which is to backup my database and send it to the email address of my choice. A different popular plugin sells an add-on for the ability to choose an email address, other than the site admin, to send the backup.
This plugin does not contain features that I do not need, such as constant upselling of premium add-ons, options to backup files, and sending backups to cloud services.
I believe this is the first backup plugin I ever used with WordPress. I was using it until it seemed like it was not being updated anymore, and then I switched to other options. I'm glad this plugin has been updated recently! Thanks Austin!
I recommend it.
