Good plugin

The backups went fine and I saved them on my computer. The problem came after my site went wonky and I tried to restore. Then I noticed that the "Restore" function is a premium addition. After a confused search in panic, I discovered the creators of this plugin have another plugin that restores for us poor sods who didn't go premium. This "Restore" plugin worked great. The support was TOP class. They answered my queries straight away and were very helpful.

Love this plugin - just wish one feature was added

This plugin is awesome! It works beautifully. I just wish the automatic scheduled backups gave us the option to save the backups locally to a directory of our choice. I hope the developer(s) read this and continue to update the plugin.

Has PHP errors

By corsac on June 7, 2018

This is the first thing i see on all my pages: Notice: Undefined index: wp_db_temp_dir in /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-db-backup/wp-db-backup.php on line 112

Install, activate, setup and forget ... until needed

This is an excellent database plugin. I have daily host-level backups, and once a month I take a full cPanel backup, but as a belt and braces approach I now have daily database backups being sent to an email address, and filtered to a backup folder. Hope I never need them, but if I do I will be relieved to see these archived.

Happy with the way the plugin works

I've been using this plugin for a few years. No problems whatsoever. Yes, it might be a security issue to store the database on the server, so at least be aware of that. Other than this, the plugin is great.

Just What You Need When You Need It

By Kit Singleton (Lace) on June 3, 2017

WP-DB-Backup has always been one of my must-have plugins for years! Not only do I use it on all of my sites, it's also one of the first things I install on my clients' sites. As an Online Business Manager and web designer, I use it to make on-demand backups before and after I make changes to a website. I also use the scheduling feature for automatic backups. WP-DB-Backup has saved numerous business owners a lot of grief because I had a resent, clean backup of their database. Since I download the site files when I do the db backup it makes it easy to fix the site when something goes wrong. One of the things I like best about this plugin is that it's so simple. Not a lot of fluff. It just does the job and does it well. Thanks for the plugin, Austin. I don't know what I'd do without it.
