BackupSheep plugin integrates with existing backup plugins such as UpdraftPlus(free/paid) and automates files and database backups using smart scheduling and the ability to push your backups to remote storage accounts.
What exactly does BackupSheep do?
Our free BackupSheep plugin integrates with existing backup plugins such as UpdraftPlus(free/paid) and your BackupSheep account: it performs full, manual or scheduled backups of all your WordPress files, databases, plugins and themes.
It works great. It promises great things, and it delivers. I use the BackupSheep platform for backup of individual WordPress sites and to take snapshots of my servers.
Only thing to mention is that this WordPress plugin requires UpdraftPlus for it to work. This fact came as a surprise to me, but it works great, so I assume that the team behind BackupSheep found it redundant to reinvent the wheel.
BackupSheep is the best backup software I've ever used. It saved my site when a hosting provider I invested in fell victim to a hacking attack and their server infrastructure collapsed. At that point it was too late to pull down backups from Plesk. Thankfully, I had my BackupSheep backups and was able to restore my site with a new hosting provider. And lesson learned, I now do nightly backups.
In addition, the founder of BackupSheep, Bilal, is quick to respond to support requests and gives you the help you need.
I have been using BackUpSheep for a few months. I love it - it just works, and I'm saving considerable sums on having to pay for Amazon storage.
It's reliable and simple enough for me to work out.
This is a a review not because I have been asked or prompted to - just because I love this backup solution!
