Review Of Backupify Part Two

Picking up where I left off in part one of the review, Backupify notified me via email that a backup of my site had successfully completed and that it was available in their Archive.

After downloading the archive to check out what was backed up, it was clear that this service will only provide a backup of the database. I was not able to test the restore feature because this is the site I created the backup from and I wouldn’t want to revert back to a few days ago in posts.

As for the full backup manually issue I described in part one, I still can’t figure it out. I disabled all the plugins to see if it would get to 100% and it still froze at 99%. I’m going to give this plugin a try on my local server install to see if the problem still persists.

Conclusion:

While I only concentrated on the WordPress aspect of Backupify, the service can back up account data from Twitter, Facebook, etc. This is where the service really shines and what it should really be used for. I think WordPress plugins such as WordPress backup or even this brand spanking new plugin, WordPress EZ Backup may be a little more up to the task.

  1. In terms of WordPress, this plugin shines with backing up to the cloud automatically. The local backup never worked for me at all either. If you want to backup offsite and never think about it, this is your plugin though. Other plugins for local backups are much better as is with this plugin now.
