BackUpWordPress – WordPress plugin Free download

Click to Download



BackupWordPress was created by our friends at HumanMade but is now under new ownership. We’re committed to opensource and WordPress and will provide free support for the many BackupWordPress fans.
We’ll make occasional updates to the free software – please send us any patches you’d like to see released here:

However, we’ll no longer be selling or supporting the paid add-ons (e.g. for backups to Dropbox and Google Drive). It’s certainly a good idea to backup to cloud storage to protect against server-wide risks.
For this we recommend UpdraftPlus WordPress Backups which can do things for free BackupWordPress Premium could do on a paid basis. Click here for full comparison.

The plugin will try to use the mysqldump and zip commands via shell if they are available, using these will greatly improve the time it takes to back up your site.


Where does BackUpWordPress store the backup files?

Backups are stored on your server in /wp-content/backups, you can change the directory.

Absolut empfehlenswert, Benutze das Plugin seit drei Jahren. Ein grosses Dankeschön!
