How the MainWP Buddy Extension works with BackupBuddy Features
Run Multiple Types of Backups
Run database, files-only or complete backups, or set up custom profiles.
With the Buddy Extension, you can choose to set all your sites to the same backup type or drill down to individual websites and set each section to its own specific needs.
Download Zip Files
After a backup completes, you can download a zip file of your entire WordPress site.
Download all your previous backups from any of your Child Sites directly from your MainWP Dashboard.
Set It & Forget It
Run automatic WordPress backups hourly, twice daily, daily, every other day, bi-weekly, weekly, monthly, and more.
Schedule all your sites to run with the same schedule or drill down to individual websites and set different schedules.
Store Files Safely Off-site
Automatically send your WordPress backup files to several remote storage locations, including BackupBuddy Stash, Amazon S3, Google Drive, Dropbox, & more.
Setup your Off-site storage for every site in one place or drill down to individual websites and set specific off-site storage.
Know when BackupBuddy finishes or needs attention so you can always be sure you have a current and useful backup of your website.
Set all your email notifications for every site from one central location on your MainWP Dashboard.
Restore or Move with ImportBuddy
BackupBuddy uses a unique tool called ImportBuddy to restore (or move) your WordPress site. ImportBuddy will guide you through the entire process, step by step.
BackupBuddy’s WordPress backup & restore feature is quick and straightforward. Upload the ImportBuddy file and your backup zip file, and we’ll walk you through the steps to restore your entire site: your themes, plugins, widgets, and everything else.
Yes, you can even set up your ImportBuddy information from your MainWP Dashboard
Individual File Restore
View contents of text-based files (.php, .html, .htaccess, etc.) & restore individual files to their original location (undelete or “rollback” a file).
Need to restore just one file on a site? Drill down to the individual site and restore that file from your MainWP Dashboard.
Rollback your WordPress database with just a few clicks. Database rollbacks are useful for when you accidentally permanently delete a post, page, or comment.
Database rollback is accessible from your MainWP Dashboard too!
Full Site Restore
BackupBuddy handles restoring your entire site to its original glory, including all uploaded media library files, themes, and plugin files.
BackupBuddy lets you move a WordPress site to a new host or domain quickly. BackupBuddy’s WordPress migration feature is very popular for WordPress developers who build custom sites for clients locally or on a temporary domain and then move the entire site to a live domain.
Move to A New Host, Change Domains or URL Replacement
Need to move your WordPress site to a new host? BackupBuddy allows you to move your entire site to a new host or server.
Handle all the steps of a move directly from your MainWP Dashboard!
