Not able to configure it
By , for WP 4.1.1

I installed this plugin but was not able to configure it as I would not understand if it meant doing so on the cpanel or just some in an external storage?

Can someone please guide me on how to configure it as I am getting numerous errors of folder not rewritable, change folder name from A to B etc.
As I have been backing up DB manually but the file is never in full as most tables under the DB selected (to backup)are not in the .sql

I will really ap[preciate as I am maintaining a website with so many subsites within and cannot rely on the that of the hosting company only.

A must for any sites

Installed on all my sites. Saved my ass many times when the worst comes around.

Great set of tools and can email you backups. Would wish a means of uploading older DB files to install that were emailed.

Great plugin. The best.

I do not know why there are not more positive reviews. This plugin can literally save hours and days of hard work if something goes wrong. Imagine that you are a long time working on something and then you have made an update and everything is destroyed.

This has happened to me several times. And it has taught me one thing. Before any update you should make a backup. And you have no worries.

very good

Simple, Can Be a Lifesaver
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin has saved me a few different times when sites have crashed. I love setting this up to just email me a backup of a site's database on a weekly basis. Just set it and forget it!

Unable to get it to work
By , for WP 4.0

I spent about 2 hours trying to get this plugin to work. The first time I installed it, it said my backup directory was not writable. It did not exist, so I guess that would mean it isn't writable. When I created the backup directory and made it writable, the plugin would install and activate ok, but when I tried to do a backup, it told me that there were some php functions it could not find. At that point, I gave up, uninstalled, and deleted the plugin.

I was looking for something to replace BackupBuddy because of the expense of BackupBuddy.

However, BackupBuddy just works, and since my time is worth something, I'm going to renew it. Maybe next year, there will be a workable free backup/restore plugin on wordpress.org, but there does not appear to be one now.

I have been through the PhpAdmin backup and restore, but it, too, takes a lot of time, and the multi-step process going both ways is tedious and error-prone. Last time I migrated a site that way, it took me an entire weekend. Backup Buddy enabled me to do that in about 15 minutes.

When WP-DBManager can do that, I'll be happy to switch. I'd even pay money for that (since I already do). I'll check this out next year, when my BackupBuddy subscription comes due again.

Every site must have backups and this plugin helps you to do so.

Handy Plugin To Keep Around

Works with 3.9.2 and is a handy plugin to have. Keep your site up-to-date and your database in top operating condition.
