With this Add On, you can:

  1. Encrypt Your Database Backup

Our industry-standard AES encryptor keeps all of the sensitive WordPress installation data (e.g. passwords, lists of users, secret keys, etc.) stored in your database completely secure.

  1. Backup All Up Tables

Save Up Tables that are stored in the same MySQL database as your WordPress but are not a part of WordPress. This is useful if, for example, you have integrated multiple MySQL applications into the same site and need a backup solution that will work for them all.

  1. Backup External MySQL Databases

If you have other PHP/MySQL applications that aren’t related to any of your WordPress sites, you can still use UpdraftPlus to back them up.


For the very best value, Updraft Premium includes this, plus every other Add On (with unlimited licences) at a significant discount. Or buy Add-On licences here for the number sites you want it for.
