DBC Backup 2 can give you the confidence that your WordPress database is backed-up and securely stored on your server.

You select when and where your backup will be generated. The backup file is saved to directory on your web server which for many people is free storage and more reliable then saving to your home computer.

Key Features

  • Secure - The file name includes some random characters which makes it impossible for someone to guess the backup name and download it.
  • Safe - the backup directory is protected with a .htaccess and an empty index.html file which means no-one can browse or download the file via the web
  • Storage - If your server has supports it, you can select between three different compression formats: none, Gzip and Bzip2.
  • Schedule - you can set hourly, daily, weekly or monthly backup
  • Manual backup - anytime you want to save a backup before updating WordPress or installing a plugin you can.

Additional Info

The plugin will try to auto create the export directory.

This plugin creates it's own sql file and does not use mysqldump like most other plugins.

During backup, a log is created that includes, the generation date, file, filesize, status and the duration of the generation.

The backup files are identical to what phpmyadmin would produce because DBC Backup is using the key procedures of phpmyadmin.

DBC Backup was built to be fast, flexible and as simple as possible.
