Looking to find a backup plugin to double protect my website in addition to WA backing up regularly. Has anyone used Updraft plus wordpress plugin? It looks like a good one.

Once this kind of plugin is installed, what happens next? do I have to regularly click to back up website, or does it do it automatically?
Appreciate feedback.

Hi Julia, I use UpdraftPlus - Backup/Restore.

I have never had to do a restore, but it seems very efficient & this sis confirmed by Chrys below too. So it must be a good one.

Best Regards,

Trevor

I agree with Trish, All in One WP Migration is a great and reliable backup plugin, however, it is not automated.

Updraft comes in very very close as well.

Thanks Chrystopher for your comment, I don't want to be worrying about when to keep backing up work etc, so Updraft sounds good :-)

Ensure that you connect it to a cloud service, or some other offsite location to the web server, so that you have access to the backup should you lose access to the current WordPress/Hosting

I use WP Clone on one website and Updraft Plus on another.
I personally liked MarionBlack recommending me WP Clone because it was very easy to use. Click on Create Back Up and it was done in few minutes. Easy breezey.

Updraft Plus works the same way also. But faster, it even shows you the percentage meter of how far along you are in completing the Back Up which is very convenient statically speaking wise.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your recommendation, I'll check out WP Clone, though automated back up is more my scene, but still good to know :-)

Hey Julia,

If you are asking for the most reliable backup plugin, then my vote goes to this one: as I had been using a previous one that the developer walked away from for over a year... and that plugin also stopped backing up my sites that are large in content.

Since moving to this plugin, I have had NO issues so now I use it on ALL sites that I tend to on a regular basis.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks Trish for your input, good VT, though I'd be worrying when I should be doing back ups I don't want to get into too much techno stuff. Appreciate your time in feeding back :-)

Not sure why you think there's "techno stuff" involved. It is pretty much the same steps with EVERY backup plugin.

It may be more involved if you were to literally TRANSFER from one site to another. However, I've done that and NEVER had to "fix" any URLs... EVER.

Am guessing this plugin has developed since the video was created, to take moving a site from one domain to another into consideration.

A backup file is a backup file.
