XCloner can automate your backups in two important ways: scheduling backups and performing backups before automated updates are applied.
XCloner makes use of the powerful
WP-Cron feature in WordPress to schedule regular backups. Hourly, daily (once or twice), weekly and monthly schedules are available. And if you need something more customized you are able to schedule multiple backups each with different parameters.
Auto-updates are here to stay in WordPress. In fact, they are expanding from core updates to include plugins and themes. XCloner is able to detect these auto-updates and trigger a backup before applying them. This gives you a backup of your site to use in case the auto-update process breaks your website.
