Does exactly what you need with minimum effort!
By , for WP 4.2

It backs up files & DB, encrypts and stores them locally, lets you download the zip and/or store it on their free cloud service if you want. It does scheduling, but note the remote cloud backup is incremental, which is good news in terms of keeping within their 100mb limit (on the cloud - local server/download is unlimited) but bad news if you want cloud-versioning, however I would consider remote versioning a pro feature an unfair as a criticism for a free service.

This does what you want without error and 'just works' pretty much out the box. What more could you want?

Actually works

Scheduled backups, backing up of other folders in your root that are not the /wp folder, everything.

Wish it wasn't abandoned
By , for WP 4.1

I have enjoyed using this plugin, but since it appears to be abandoned, I am searching for something that is still supported.

compatible to 3.6.1
By , for WP 4.0

Website says compatible to 3.6.1, Author is too lazy to change this information. That's a bad sign. Why would I want to use this? Just installed updraftplus.

UNKNOWN FAILURE
By ,

The plugin has not worked for last month and online backup fails with "UNKNOWN FAILURE" error. I rather recommend UpdraftPlus where you can backup your files to whatever online drive you want (Dropbox, GDrive, ...).

plugin not working
By , for WP 3.9.1

making the backup is possible, but when I try to retrieve the backup it doesn't work... also tried to get some help on support forum from creators of the plugin, also by mail, but no answer.
Bad plugin, Bad support :///

wponlinebackup broken with WP 3.9
By ,

wponlinebackup no longer works with my WP 3.9 installation. I have reported the problem, but support really sucks for this plug-in. Don't install it unless your can debug PHP yourself.

Nice Backup Plugin
By , for WP 3.9

Have been using this plugin on several sites now for a while, and it has worked very well. One of the best free backup plugins I have found to date. Thanks for your efforts Backup Technology!!

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Tried a few others before this plugin, but this was the best (for me). Highly recommended!

works fine
By , for WP 3.8.1

The plugin works fine, scheduling is very good.
5 stars when the restore case will be handled better (e.g. with gui like "duplicator")
