The Original WordPress Backup Plugin
SAVING WORDPRESS SITES AROUND THE WORLD SINCE 2010
We built BackupBuddy because we experienced our own catastrophic server crash. At the time, WordPress didn’t offer any complete backup solutions. In both of our failure cases, we needed entire directory and file backups for complete site recovery.
Based on our experience, we knew a complete backup would require these four main ingredients:
- Complete Database & Files Backup
- Convenient to Create
- Quick & Easy to Restore
- Trustworthy & Reliable
BackupBuddy – WordPress Backups Made Easy!
