Free WordPress Backup Plugins

Do Free WordPress Backup Plugins Work?

I just got an email from Robert Plank, creator of Backup Creator a plugin I’ve been using since September, 2011.  It is extremely useful for me as I’m still in the learning stage when it comes to WordPress.  His email about free WordPress backup plugins is below.

Sometimes I edit things I shouldn’t and I need a good backup option because  my site will develop a problem!  Shortly I plan on changing the theme I am using here because I really don’t like the double sidebar….would much prefer a single side bar or maybe no sidebar at all and put all the ads and junk on a resource page.  We’ll see.

In the meantime, whatever I decide to do, I’ll backup with Backup Creator and have my site safe, so if I really screw up I can put it back with about three clicks.  I will admit that one time I did have to get host gator to clear out the junk…..then I installed a new Wp install, installed my Backup Creator plugin on the admin page and clicked restore….site back in just the time it took to upload!

Anyway, back to Robert’s Email: This is what he had to say.

We’ve been talking the last couple of days about
backing up your WordPress site and keeping your
data, hard work, and your business safe…

By now, you might be wondering, aren’t there some
quote-unquote “free” WordPress plugins available
to help me backup my site?

Sure… there are tons… except:

1. You don’t know if they are kept up to date

2. They don’t backup all WordPress plugins and

3. They don’t allow you to restore your site to a
DIFFERENT location (very important)

Basically, I have tried all the free WP backup
plugins and I hated them… several in fact,
“seemed” to restore the backup… but as soon as I
clicked any links on the blog, the blog crashed!
(sound familiar?)

That’s the exact reason I made Backup Creator,
because the free ones didn’t cut it and the paid
ones were too difficult to use.

Get Backup Creator right now (there’s an
unconditional 30 day money back guarantee so you
can try it out) and get it right here:

What Robert left out is something else important,  I tried another “paid” backup plugin…sort of pricey but the main thing was it didn’t work like Backup Creator does…..

Let me Explain…..I’m not a techie genius, I’m learning as I go, so the other plugin I tried to use  had some lines of text that you had to go somewhere and put them in (never figured it out) think ftp was involved.   You installed it from the Admin Plugin  just like a regular plugin, but after that things went downhill……I decided it wasn’t for me and got a refund!

Now with  Backup Creator, you sign in, copy your license info and then you download the plugin to your desktop or a file (I named mine Backup Creator).

Then sign into WordPress Admin on your site and go through the regular plug in install except you upload from your computer, click install and it is there.  Hit the settings on it, enter your information…it will ask for what you should enter and you are in business.

That’s it.  no text or php to find a place for or  anything else.

Robert’s Newest version of Backup Creator Elite even includes a choice of automatic setup  to backup your site and sent the backup to the storage you specify…or sends you an email letting you know it has been done.

Lance Tamashiro has a quick video here that explains eveything you want to know about Backup Creator including the fact that you can even “backup” a huge membership site  and with the magic of Backup Creator install it on another server or domain…total time?  Just how long it takes your server to upload the zipped backup package.  Everything works when it arrives and all your plugin settings and links are exactly the same as before the transfer.

Back up or Clone Your Entire WordPress Site with Backup Creator

Ever had that sinking feeling when you  clicked on your

site and it was gone?

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!

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!
