“BackupBuddy is the first plugin I install on every WordPress site I do. Not only does it provide peace of mind and security for my clients as a reliable backup mechanism for their sites, but as a developer, it saves me time and cost with the ability to move sites from my local development environment to the client’s live site in a snap. It’s my top “must have” plugin for WordPress, hands down.”
We built BackupBuddy because we experienced our own catastrophic server crash. At the time, WordPress didn’t offer any complete backup solutions. In both of our failure cases, we needed entire directory and file backups for complete site recovery.
