Over the years I've had the WP-DBManager plugin automatically backing up the MySQL database and then, every so often, I download a copy of the theme directories from the website -- sort of haphazard.

I'm wondering what approaches other people take to backing up.

I've started reading about the BackUpBuddy plugin which costs $$ but sounds pretty neat. It claims to automate an inclusive backup of the entire WP setup. And then especially nice, the plugin has a quick and easy restore feature letting you get your site back up and running without a lot of fuss.

Does anyone have any experience with either BackUpBuddy or any other similar plugin?

I bought the developer version of BackupBuddy and install it on all my sites. I schedule weekly or monthly full backups that upload to my Amazon S3 account. I have also used it to move a site from from one server to another and it worked very nicely. I am very happy with it...

There is however one host where I am having issues but it's a host I have never heard before working with this client.

Re the use of Amazon S3: are the backup files coming down to your PC via the BackUpBuddy plugin and then slowly moving up to S3? Or is there a way to have the files go direct to Amazon.

I used to use Amazon S3 to back up my Windows Home Server but I started to worry about how long it would take to do a restore if I ever had a serious system crash. I've been using KeepVault since March 2010, but still worry.
