Will the plugin work on my host?

If your website is running on WordPress then yes it will.

The plugin has been extensively tested on the shared and dedicated hosting plans from the leading website hosting providers like Godaddy, Siteground, and many others.

What should I do if i get the backup error: An error has occurred. class:Error;msg:Call to undefined function curl_init();code:0;line:129 ?

You should install cURL extension in your PHP installation and try again.

What does the error «Error: Backup error: Allowed memory size of xxxxxxxxxx bytes exhausted (tried to allocate xxxxxxxxxx bytes), task id: wpvivid-xxxxxxxxxxxxx.» mean?

This error often occurs while creating a backup for a website with an oversized database. In this case, the size of database is larger than the value of memory limit in php.ini file. As a result, there will be no sufficient memory to compress the database.
To avoid that, please try using the solutions below to modify memory limit in php.ini file, and make sure the value is larger than the database size:
1. Increase PHP memory limit.
Please try to contact your web hosting provider for changing PHP memory limit, or modify it by yourself as the administrator role if your website is hosting on VPS or dedicated server.
2. Upgrade your web hosting plan.


Easy-to-use backup plugin

I especially like having the ability to back up to various cloud sites without having to buy a separate extension. This plugin is super-easy to set up and use. My only nit is that it appears to use a schedule based on UTC/server time rather than the WordPress Timezone setting (which is only a problem for those of us who are math-challenged). A little more flexibility in setting the scheduled times would be great. I'll be eager to see this plugin develop and mature.

Very good but some features still missing

This is an excellent alternative to existing solutions and very useful with split archives in some cases. My initial remarks: - didn't find any option to exclude directories/files - no compression level for archives to choose from - split archive sizes not correct: I tested with setting to compress files every 10MB but got some packets of 15MB - downloading split archives one by one can be annoying for large backups; would be nice to have a "select all" option before downloading split archives. (didn't test migration yet)

The best free premium backup plugin

Wow it is the best and gorgeous backup and migrate plugin. Backups in cloud services for free and easy to use. Thanks and congratulations for your awesome work.

In some respects better than Updraft

Werks well, the UI is better (cleaner) than Updraft, have some nice features. No doubt, it will be a star one day. The only wish - to support ClassicPress not only for now, but for the future too. Good job!

This is Better than udraftplus backup

Exactly what I needed Easy to use and work well,I tested this plugin today, and I really like it. The plugin has a very simple and easy to use interface. This free plugin makes the backup and restore process simple and very easy for anyone,udraftplus to much headache its give issue a http 500 error incompatible with other cache to much marketing instead on focusing the quality of backup to work any cache plugin..Thanks for the plugin its better alternative to udraftplus same capability keep up the Good work and maintain this back up quality that compatible with other cache...
