Combine the power of your MainWP Dashboard with BackupBuddy, one of the most popular backup plugins!
With the MainWP Buddy Extension, you can control the BackupBuddy Plugin settings for all your child sites directly from your MainWP Dashboard. This includes giving you the ability to create child site backups and even set backup schedules.
You can also select to use the MainWP Buddy Extension as your primary backup option which removes the standard MainWP backup screens and replaces them with your new MainWP Buddy screens, helping to keep your Dashboard clean.
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 sites and set each site 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 sites and set individual 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 sites and set specific off-site storage
Know immediately 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 special 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 simple. Simply 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 setup 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 “roll back” a file).
Need to restore just one file on that a site? Drill down to the individual site and restore that file from your MainWP Dashboard.
Roll back 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 back 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 easily. BackupBuddy’s WordPress migration feature is a very popular feature for WordPress developers who build custom sites for clients locally or on a temporary domain and then move the entire site over to a live domain.
Need to restore a site? Of course, that is included with your MainWP Buddy Extension.
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!
