WP Clone has been Updated

It's taken a long time, with wordpress.org cautioning us that:

"This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress."

But I'm happy to report that one of my favourite plugins was updated about a week ago.

The compatibility message is still there but I've used it myself on the latest versions of WordPress and it works just as well as it did before. It's by far the quickest manual method of backing up and restoring your websites.

It's still likely to fail on large websites so make sure you use another backup method as well. All In One WP Migration (premium extension required for restoring) or Updraft Plus (free) are recommended.

When I'm migrating a website from one hosting company to another I use at least 2 plugins plus FTP, and I back up the database separately as well.

Anyway, if you haven't backed up your site recently then give WP Clone a try.

So, if I change a theme do I need to do double backups?

I always do double backups before making big changes like changing themes. You never know when you're going to need a backup.

Thanks Marion. This is really great news. Can you have more than one backup plugin or don't you recommend it?

I use WP Clone and Updraft Plus for regular backups and All In One WP Migration for migrating websites from one host to another.

The main thing to be careful of is how much space your backups are hogging on the servers.

This is wonderful news Marion! I never stopped using WP Clone, I created backups 3 weeks ago before I went on my trip to Asia! It always worked for me:)
