I tested a handful of backup plugins today but most of them were too limited in the free version. When I got to XCloner I stopped testing. XCloner didn’t cost me a cent and has all the features needed to make a full backup of my site. I store my backups on Google Drive: that is also included for free, as are many other popular cloud storage services. A+++
I have been using XCloner on all my WordPress sites for many years. I use it to back up each site automatically every week. I’ve used these back ups to successfully restore and migrate sites. The plugin creator is very helpful and willing to put in the time and effort to make sure his plugin will work with any site configuration. I am very appreciative of the tremendous free support he has provided over the years. I also appreciate that he keeps XCLoner updated frequently – the latest update is the best! (the new interface looks great and I love that the back up schedules are stored in the sql database now). Thank you!
I have used this plugin for years, and it does great. It was a bit hard to figure out at first, but has become easier over the years, and now with the new update, there’s a whole new interface that is easier to use than ever. I have had trouble with other back up plugins not being able to handle large sites, like 4 GB or more, but XCloner does it without timing out or causing errors. Love it!
Excellent plugin! Does the backup as expected, sends it to remote Backblaze B2 as expected. I needed to get used the the UI (as with most plugins). xCloner simply works. In my opinion the developer has put a lot of thought into the experience, which is evident in the practical options available. Recommending this as a standard “must use” backup plugin. Well done xCloner!
Ce plugin est super. Il permet de faire des sauvegardes dans un dossier spécifique en dehors du dossier racine. Il permet de planifier plusieurs sauvegardes à des fréquences différentes et avec des contenus différents (bdd, fichiers…) et de créer des copies sur un autre serveur via sftp (sécurisé). Merci!
