BackupBuddy supports File Transport Protocol (FTP) as a Remote Destination. FTP is the most common way of sending larger files between servers. Most web hosting accounts provide FTP access.
Adding FTS as a Remote Destination
- Once on the Remote Destinations page, click the +Add New button to add your FTP destination.
- From the Add New Destination page, click the Connect to Dropbox & Authorize button.
- In the new window that opens, login to Dropbox.com if prompted and click Allow.
You'll then see the Success! notification that BackupBuddy has been connected to Dropbox.
- Return to the BackupBuddy Add New Destination page in your browser and click the Yes, I've Authorized BackupBuddy with Dropbox button.
- Configure the following destination settings:
- Destination name - Name of the new destination to create. This is for your convenience only.
- Directory (optional) - [Example: backupbuddy or backupbuddy/mysite/ or myfiles/backups/mysite] - Directory (or subdirectory) name to place the backups within.
- Archive Limit - [Example: 5] - Enter 0 for no limit. This is the maximum number of archives to be stored in this specific destination. If this limit is met the oldest backups will be deleted.
- Once you've entered all of your settings, click the +Add Destination button.
- Your new location will now show on the Remote Destinations page in BackupBuddy. If you need to change your settings, click the gear symbol to the right of the destination.
