Backup Creator – WordPress Backup Plugin

The Internet Age has revolutionized the way we live and do business. However, it has also placed us in a situation where we are continuously under the potential threat of online theft, having our websites and social media accounts being infected by malicious software and our business and personal data stolen, manipulated or wiped out.

If you manage any digital business assets like a business website, then you need to prioritize website security and the importance of creating an internet security plan.

In addition to creating an internet security plan for your business, you will also want to prevent data loss from mistakes that can cause significant damage or disruption to your business. Having a way to restore your site, files or data in extreme cases is something that can only be appreciated once tragedy has struck.

Then again, you may just want to save time. If your business requires cloning a number of websites or blogs, having a time-saving way of cloning website information from one site to another can be most convenient.

As the adage goes, “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Backing up your WordPress website, therefore, is absolutely vital. The truth, however, is that left to their own devices, so few website owners remember to do it, or don’t do it as often as this should be done.

Let’s face it … getting your web site hacked, losing data, and changing things that end up breaking your site is all part of the reality of doing business online. If something tragic were to ever happen to you, then you would need an easy and quick way to recover lost content, get back an earlier version of your site, or even complete reinstall your site and information.

Fortunately, if you use WordPress, then there’s an easy tool that allows you to create backups of your WP database and web site files, copy your site to another location and restore your old site and data.

Here are a few of the testimonials and comments that users have published about Backup Creator:

”I installed Backup Creator on my site several weeks ago. Yesterday the company whose theme I use sent me an upgrade. I upgraded and to my surprise, all of my formatting was lost. Graphics, colors, column settings, everything. It took me the better part of two weeks to create all of this. Luckily, I used Backup Creator before I installed the upgrade. I followed the directions and in less than 5 minutes my site was recovered and back on line! Backup Creator is a life saver.” Warren Hayford, RatioWriter.com


”I just backed up from my site http://mysite.com/customersite (I installed a wordpress installation under my own domain to let them see what they were getting)… when I restored it to their domain (http://customersite.com) EVERYTHING was fixed with all pointers regarding “mysite.com” removed…. Freakin Awesome… I figured I was going to copy and paste all the pages, pictures, etc… since I’m doing this part time, I figured about 2 nights of work…. NOT!!! This utility just paid for itself. Literally took about 5 minutes to complete.” Larry Tosten, Tosten.com


”I really like this plugin, you can to save and to keep all information of your blog in few minutes in safe way.” Miguel Medina, TecnicasParaHablarEnPublico.com


Plugin Tips

Here are some great uses for this plugin:

Instant Documentation Of All Your Website Processes.

Instead of spending a lot of time documenting all of the steps necessary to make your website or blog work “just right”, or creating a website setup manual, you can just set up your website or blog exactly the way you want it, make a backup copy|make an identical copy of site and then restore it somewhere else and you’ve now got an exact, “documented” copy of your blog setup.

For example, let’s say that you want to set up a number of sites including identical settings and configurations in other niches. This could be for a regional retailer, or a travel agency with branches in several locations, where each store will manage the content of their own separate website. Think of all the time spent tweaking and finetuning your site so that it looks just right and works exactly the way you want it to. You can now instantly install a fully-functioning, perfectly configured blog every time with just a few mouse clicks.

Clone A Website With Correct Internal Referencing Links.

Simply backing up WP files and restoring WordPress file backups won’t duplicate your blogs successfully. You also have to copy the WordPress database and make sure that it references the new domain. Otherwise, your database data will be restored to another domain, but still be referencing the old site. That’s why it’s important to have a backup plugin that was specifically designed to clone sites. This allows you to perform a backup of site ”A” in seconds and restore it to site “B” with all your theme customizations, plugin and site settings and configurations intact, once again, saving you hours – even weeks of work, and ensuring that all internal reference links have been configured correctly.

Don’t Fix Serious Problems … Just Restore!

Here’s another great time-saving tip: if your site did get hacked, or an unauthorized user somehow gets in and does any kind of damage to your site, instead of spending days or weeks trying to repair the problem, just make a backup of your broken site, delete everything, and restore a previous working version. Your site is now immediately returned to normal and you can then send the damaged site’s files to an troubleshooter who can then try to figure out how your site got interfered with and how to repair or identify any vulnerabilities.

Here’s one final tip:

Archive Your Site’s Changes Over Time.

Imagine in a few years that your business has grown and transformed into an online success. Wouldn’t it be great to show people how your business online began? Or maybe you’ve made things so complex and would like to restore things to a simpler place. Perhaps you’ve accidentally deleted a bunch of videos and want to get those back.

If you keep a weekly backup of your site, the chances of losing important information are minimal because you don’t have to worry about where you have stored or organized all your files. Just go back to when you remember you had that file, restore your backup (note: it can be retrieved from anywhere, even on a test site) and grab the file you need.

I just have to write and give a HUGE testimonial to Robert for the level of his support. I am one of the purchasers who wanted to copy my blog from one of the less than popular hosts to one of the more popular hosts. To make matter worse, my blog is quite complex. I encountered problem after problem each time I went to make my backup copy. I reported this via the support desk and almost immediately I began receiving support including updates of the software. It took several iterations before the problem was solved but Robert never stopped working to get it right for my site. The level of support has been stellar.
