Automatic Backup of theme AND contents needed

Hi
WP 3.1.4 - ATA 3.6.7

Can any one recommend a free plugin (or low cost) to automatically backup my site/s.

Backupbuddy premium plugin seems very expensive.

I would prefer to set the backup to do its work automatically and then have the files zipped to me or amazon s3 without me being involved again.

Ease of use of the backup to restore the site when the proverbial hits the fan is important.

I tend to prefer manual back up, does not take long, though I dare say if you have large number of sites to back up then auto would deem necessary.

Run a search for WP-DBManager as it is referred to often, here.

Looking at WP Plugin Directory - updated fairly recently:

Compatible up to: 3.1.4
Last Updated: 2011-5-3
Downloads: 445,859


Here is a useful BFA Forum Link to Back Ups / WP-DBManager http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...t=wp-dbmanager ... you can schedule backups and have the backup emailed to you.

Best one I have used is "WP Database Backups" by Austin Matzko ... here http://austinmatzko.com/wordpress-plugins/wp-db-backup/

Can backup to server, or send via email. Works really good, simple to use.

Remember, a database backup is only half he solution. If you don't backup the wp-contents folder and plugins, themes, or media you upload is not backed up.

Hi Everyone
Thanks for your replies and advice.
I realise this forum is not for general WP matters such as backup but the ATA community always wants to help, hence my question.

I have just looked in WP Plugins and chose the following backup plugin to try out. (my knowledge doesn't allow me to judge it tech' ability but seems OK & can be set to auto)
Any thoughts and or advice about it would be good.

Not impossible ..but a lot more manual work and knowledge needed.
could mean the difference between getting a site back in half an hour or ..say.. 1 or 2 days.


Depends on how critical it is for you to get a site up and running again.
This post should be in bold, take note people, STB is spot on here.

Absolutely, that's why I prefer manual backup.

And, I can get a site back up in half an hour.
