Hi,

I have a client that is using WP 3.0.1 and I need to move the site to another host.  He is using older plugins and is reluctant to upgrade because of the plugins breaking and having to spend more money getting things fixed or finding different plugins.  Will Backup Buddy work on this older install?

Thanks,
Stan

Hi Stan

Thanks for your enquiry. The server requirements are described under the Questions/FAQ on the BackupBuddy product information page: BackupBuddy - the premiere WordPress backup plugin to backup, restore and move WordPress | iThemes

With such an old WordPress version (over 2.5 years) and consequently probably many out of date and possible no longer supported plugins (and possibly theme) it's impossible to say whether or not it will work out of the box without some tweaking (and maybe doing things like deactivating plugins that may be interfering). Certainly there will be functionality that will not work but as noted in the product information we do try and maintain backward compatibility as much as we possibly can as far as WordPress core itself is concerned and the core plugin capabilities. We do also still have available an earlier BackupBuddy version which can be used for older sites and _may_ be more compatible but again it's not guaranteed.

I hope the above information is helpful in making your decision and of course if you have any additional question or clarification required in this respect please let us know.

Regards...jeremy

Thanks.  So If I get the backup Buddy plugin I will get the latest version and have access to older plugin versions that might work?

Thanks,
Stan

Hi Stan

Yes, you will be able to download and install the current release stream version and have access to unlimited updates and support for the current release stream version for the duration of your membership. You will also have access to the final version of the previous release stream which is now frozen - however, please note that support for previous release stream version is on a best effort basis and there will be no updates as this version is now frozen.

Regards...jeremy
