Duplicator Pro review

Duplicator Pro is a backup plugin for WordPress designed to make the process of taking a backup of as well as migrating your WordPress site truly convenient. It avoids bloat and packs in just the right amount of features needed to save you time and effort.

Apart from the quick and easy manual backup, you can also schedule periodic backups, keeping you from any worry if you forget to do it yourself. It bundles your site into a package, and lets you copy it to a new host or domain. For re-installation, you don’t even need to install WordPress or the plugin.

You can limit the number of your stored backups, so you don’t fill your server with hundreds of previous versions. You can easily filter directories, files, extensions and database tables you want to backup. It also lets you back up to the cloud for safe storage, with built-in integration for Dropbox, FTP, Google Drive and Amazon S3.

The plugin’s overhauled package engine is faster than earlier versions, and works very well with larger sites. Besides standard single site capability, the plugin also supports multisite network backup and migration, and can even install a subsite as a standalone site. The ability to manually import an SQL file means it now supports very large databases also. You can easily access only the database file if you need to just restore a database. You can also easily select existing cPanel databases and users or create new ones without ever leaving the installer. Email notifications inform you immediately if there are any issues with backup or time out. Another handy feature is that instead of manually configuring the same themes and plugins over and over, you can just configure one site, bundle it into a Duplicator package, and install it to create a pre-configured site on as many locations as you want.
