In 2010, we rolled out a game-changing WordPress backup solution to help you protect your WordPress sites called BackupBuddy.
BackupBuddy was built out of our own need and failure to do proper backups after two catastrophic server crashes. (Full disclosure: I completely lost blog posts and photos on my own site as part of one of these crashes.)
At launch, BackupBuddy was game-changing for WordPress (and still is) because it gives you the ability to employ a complete and independent backup strategy. With BackupBuddy, you can backup your WP sites (plugins, themes, settings, databases, everything) and then, easily restore it in the event of a crash, or easily migrate/move your sites, whether it be from a sandbox site, or onto different hosting.
We strongly believe you need an independent backup strategy … one that’s apart from your host, and not completely dependent on your host. You own your data and work, not your host. And you should have the freedom and flexibility to get your data and go, any time you want.
Since BackupBuddy was launched, over the last 6 years, we’ve been improving it and making it even better and easier to protect your WP sites (and to restore and move them at will).
Today, I’m thrilled to announce the long-awaited arrival of BackupBuddy 7.0 and with it, our latest blockbuster feature, Stash Live, offering you another awesome way to backup and protect your online work.
Stash Live offers you automated, real-time, incremental backups of your work, while taking off the heavy lifting of backing up your sites off your server.
Stash Live was built to be a “set it and forget it” option for you to get your WP sites safely stored remotely. I’ve got it running on my personal sites already and love the peace of mind I have knowing my work is being backed up and safely stored offsite.
Don’t take my word though … go see for yourself.
All current BackupBuddy customers can start using Stash Live for free now.
Start using Stash Live in BackupBuddy 7.0 in just 2 simple steps:
- Update to BackupBuddy 7.0. You can save time updating all your sites at once from the iThemes Sync dashboard, or update BackupBuddy from your WordPress dashboard (for licensed sites). If you still don’t have BackupBuddy or you need to renew your membership, you can buy BackupBuddy here.
- Use your iThemes username and password to login on the new Stash Live page located in the BackupBuddy menu in your WordPress dashboard.
We’ve written a complete tutorial on how to set up Stash Live here to walk you through everything, so go check it out.
The long and short of this is …. we believe BackupBuddy 7.0 and Stash Live is going to save you time, while also protecting your precious online work.
We have your WordPress backups handled … so you can focus on building your blog, building your business, and doing better things with your time.
