Replying to Backupbuddy: How Does Full Backup Work For Multisite
Posted 31 January 2013 - 01:27 PM
I just purchased the Plugin Buddy all access pass and will be using the Multisite beta. It's OK that it is beta for me since I have 3 redundant servers for my multisite networks.

Thanks for sharing information and your interests! There still isn't a timeline of when or if these features will be implemented. BackupBuddy Multisite is still in BETA and is not recommended for production sites. The developers are aware of your interest and I'll let you know as soon as I hear anything.

You can export the entire Multisite network from your server weekly. Then when a problem arises, import that entire Multisite network backup onto your localhost. Then export the individual site that has been corrupted (but the backup will be from before it was corrupted) and import/restore that individual site back onto the server. So, it sounds like we don't have to backup each site within the network individually every week. That would be a total pain. I mean how often will a site need to be restored right? At least this solution will work until the dev team works on some automated individual backups for us or finds a way to restore 1 site from a Multisite backup.
I guess if you were developing something on localhost at the time you could export that site and import it back after installing the entire Multisite backup onto your localhost.

It is a wonderful plugin! I will make sure the developers are aware of your interest in the Multisite portion. When I get any news for you I'll post it here.
Thank you for your interest in BackupBuddy!
Please let us know if you ever have any questions!

It's too bad that BackupBuddy can't help me because it looks like a very solid plugin.
Maybe you can explain my situation to the developper so that they can plan something for a future release. I'll keep an eye on backupbuddy in case this feature comes up
