My WP Backup Pro review

Every second that your website is down, it translates directly into loss of readers for your blog or hard cash for your business. To ensure that you are protected at all times from the effects of power outages, server issues or hacking, a backup WordPress plugin like My WP Backup Pro is the tool you need. With tons of features to make your life easy, you can focus on content creation instead of spending time on taking manual backups or dealing with technical stress.

While the plugin lets you take manual backups at any time very easily, it can also add to your convenience by letting you schedule automatic periodic backups. You can choose to backup everything on your WordPress installation or save time and space by using the smart differential backup option to back up only what’s changed since the last backup. Other flexible options include splitting backups into smaller volumes, backing up only the WordPress database, backing up selective files, and excluding specific files and directories by name or even quicker through simple glob patterns. Restoration is equally easy, and allows you to restore any of your past backups. WP Backup Pro also includes WP-CLI commands, allowing you to run a backup or restore data right from the command line.

You also get the option to back up to FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Rackspace, and Microsoft Azure or to another server. You can even have your backup sent to email, and choose to have your archives stores as ZIP files or tar, tar.gz and tar.bz2 archive types. Notifications via email, Slack or Hipchat can give you updates about your backups too. With access to logs, you can verify that your backups are running smoothly and troubleshoot any issues.

And the plugin does all this with a low memory footprint, keeping your server from stalling.
