You signed in and all you got was a Blank Page or maybe even a 404 with an ad from Host Gator to sign up for a penny?
Well I have, and I was able to Google around and copy some of the pages from cache files, but a lot of it I never recovered.
This will never happen to me again.
I now have Backup Creator, to be exact this site was transferred to http://SkipperWorks.biz/
I backed up this site that I am working on for a Thornhill coaching class…I wanted to transfer it because this site had some more work to be done and I rather liked the look of the theme I was using at the time which is different from this theme (which is required for the class). I have added changes on both, some of the categories remain the same, but they look entirely different because of the difference in the themes.
It took me about five minutes (I have an old computer and a slow ISP) to install Backup Creator, create a backup and install this complete site with pages, posts, categories and plugins with EVERYTHING working when it got there. I used Fantastico to install a fresh WP and uploaded the Backup Creator Plugin, clicked restore and had it done in less time than it took to type this!
Instant Backup Instant Clone
Just click one button and your backup is automatically created, I then download the new plugin created and the complete backup to a file on my portable backup disc. Just to keep things simple I have a Folder called Backup Creator and make a new folder inside for each site…makes things easier to find..Had to use it twice last week, updated to latest wordpress and something didn’t like the new version….when it all goes away and you just have an error code you know you are in trouble!
Whether you have a blog that you use to keep your family updated on your latest vacation, operate a successful online store or create websites for other people you will feel better knowing that your blogs, websites and templates are just a single-click away.
The proprietary Clone-It technology ensures that you can quickly and easily deploy unlimited number of client sites pre configured in just seconds if you are a developer.
Simple. Safe. Secure.
Easy to use. Simply point, click and relax knowing that your websites and blogs are safe and secure and the best support I’ve ever had.
I wanted to use my favorite email instead of my pay pal email to power the plugin. Sent off a request to support and Lance Tamashiro and Robert Plank responded and the Email wasn’t from an auto responder.
Have already received an update, no need to do much housekeeping, just get rid of the old versions (deactivate and delete) upload new version, install, you don’t lose your backups, ACTIVATE and use the newer version.
There is a rumor going round that some new features may be added. So if you are into cloud storage, etc. go get your Backup Creator before the price goes up again!
What I like best is I can back up my total site, download the backup to my computer and as soon as I get another portable drive for backup (trogans ate my other one) save the zip file there and be completely secure. Update..have my new portable drive..works great with BC!
