We thought we’d give a few sneak peeks of some of the new things (coming soon!) in BackupBuddy 5.0. This release includes over 80+ new features and enhancements.
Some things will be obvious (like the new UI for the Backups page, Remote Destinations and ImportBuddy) and take BackupBuddy’s backup abilities to the next level (with *new* database rollback functionality). Some are behind-the-scenes improvements, focusing on improving core functionality on both the backup and restore side.
Performance, robustness and usability have all been improved in BackupBuddy 5.0. This means that BackupBuddy and ImportBuddy are easier to use (and better on the eye!) and can better handle larger sites, especially large databases.
New, Improved UI for Backups, Remote Destinations and ImportBuddy
The Backups Page, Remote Destinations and all of ImportBuddy have new, improved UIs. These updates have focused on improving the user experience and making the process of running backups, managing remote destinations and migrating/restoring your WordPress sites easier and more intuitive.
Old Backups Page
The Backups Page has gotten a major overhaul to highlight the backup process with active status updates during the backup progression. Backup details are now displayed as the backup runs, providing help as needed. The Status Log is now available in a new tab, so you can still see the details of the backup process.
New Backups Page
Old Remote Destinations Page
The Remote Destinations Page includes a new destinations UI with a tabbed display of destinations. Remote destination files & management are now displayed when viewing the remote destination page tabs for easy viewing and managing remote files.
New Remote Destinations Page
ImportBuddy also includes a new, improved user interface. Behind the scenes, the database migration step migrates URLs, paths, etc. in chunks to handle larger databases. ImportBuddy also includes a new option to select whether to restore files and/or the database during the ImportBuddy restore when dealing with full backups.
