Storing BackupBuddy backups on one site

Send your backups to an offsite service like BackupBuddy Stash, any FTP server or an Amazon S3 account. If your site goes down, your backups will not go down with it.

Sending large BackupBuddy backup files email

Consider this: each backup file can be several hundred megabytes in size. Email accounts may have restrictions on attachment size and storage limits. Send only small backups to email (such as Database Only backups). Larger backups files should be sent offsite to BackupBuddy Stash, Dropbox or an Amazon S3 account.

Relying solely on BackupBuddy Database Only backups

A BackupBuddy Database Only backup backs up your database, but it does not contain any WordPress configuration files, themes or plugins. Only a BackupBuddy Complete Backup includes all files and the entire database necessary for a complete migration or site restore.

Uploading ImportBuddy without the backup file

Restoring or migrating your site requires both the ImportBuddy script and the backup file.

Uploading ImportBuddy into a different directory than the backup file

The backup file should be uploaded to the same directory as the ImportBuddy file. In other words, don’t put the files in a subdirectory if the site is to be on the root domain.
