Hi there...Backup Buddy was recommended as a way to keep things safe and sound...yeah! Since I'm just venturing into the world of multi-site installations, I wasn't sure which licensing option to purchase.

I also noticed the feature is in beta...do you have an estimate of when you'll be moving to the next step?

At the moment, I want to be able to back up the entire multi-site network...in the future I would like to be able to have an individual file for each sub site.

Can I currently backup the entire site or, as I call it, the Mother Blog?
Is backing up individual child blogs a planned feature?

Many thanks, many blessings

Hi JL,

Multisite functionality with BackupBuddy is currently in beta and there isn't a timeline for it yet, it will leave beta when it is ready.

It can create a backup (export) of an entire mulsite and can create backups of individual sites in the multisite as well.

Any of the subscription options are fine, as long as you Network Activate it then the network will count as one license. If needing more licenses for individual sites or more networks then can choose accordingly.

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages. The gear/wheel symbol next to the search box will give you more options for advanced searching. Thank you and have a nice day.
