Most WordPress websites have lots of plugins – and that means lots of updates. Backing up, updating, and testing – and then perhaps rolling back if something is not so good – is annoying. It takes time.
Wouldn't it be great if your backup plugin automatically took an update of your plugins and themes for you, every time you performed an update in the WordPress dashboard? That's exactly what this add-on does. Whenever you update a plugin or theme or WordPress, it performs a backup of the existing plugins (if updating a plugin) and themes (if updating a theme) and your database (always). So you can update with piece of mind – and if something goes wrong, then you can roll back instantly. Read more about it here; or click on the screenshots on the left to see how simple it is.
This plugin also performs a second function: it takes automatic backups when WordPress performs an automatic background update (as it does, for example, with critical security updates, since WordPress 3.7). So, in case WordPress manages to break something when automatically updating, you will be covered.
Your purchase will pay for itself in time saved very quickly – especially if you'd been in the habit of not making backups, and taking risks with your updates.
Note: this add-on has nothing to do with periodic scheduling of backups (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) – periodic scheduling is already a standard UpdraftPlus feature!
This add-on is also part of UpdraftPlus Premium. Go here to buy UpdraftPlus Premium and get this and every add-on with amazing discounts (including unlimited licenses). Or, buy licenses here for however many sites you wish to deploy upon.
