Stash Live continuously watches for changes to posts, pages, media, plugins & themes, and then immediately pushes them up for safe storage.
Stash Live periodically takes a "Snapshot" of your site in time, which is a recording of your site at that very moment.
Your Backups are stored as downloadable zip files in BackupBuddy Stash, our secure, off-site storage destination designed to store WordPress backups.
Stash Live has tighter integration with ImportBuddy, BackupBuddy's tool for restoring & migrating your WordPress site.
Stash Live is just another way BackupBuddy, our WordPress backup plugin, backs up your WordPress site. If you're a current BackupBuddy customer, you get access to Stash Live for FREE, beginning in BackupBuddy version 7.0.
You also get 1GB of FREE BackupBuddy Stash storage space so you can start using Stash Live today. 1GB is enough to store 6 backups of the average WordPress site (150MB).
We took off the biggest pain point and problem (CPU usage / Disk I/O) we've had with slow, shared hosts and developed Stash Live to make backups work better for you on those problematic platforms. No more headaches. No more server configurations.
We use the same level of encryption that the US government authorizes for top secret government documents. All data is transferred over an SSL-encrypted connection and all data stored in encrypted with industry standard AES-256 encryption.
We run deep file-level malware and virus scanning for every Snapshot backup. We'll immediately alert you if we find anything after our scan and flag problematic backup files with a warning.
Once Stash Live is enabled, you can view, download and delete your BackupBuddy Stash backups from the iThemes Sync dashboard. You can also run remote Snapshot backups for all your sites from Sync.
PHP scripts can't run themselves. If you have a site with low traffic, the Cron Kicker helps "kick" your site and move things along for Stash Live.
Stash Live will automatically email you your latest Snapshot backup file downloads in case you go over your storage space quota.
Stash Live will backup the entire Network, including all sub-sites. Note: It isn't possible to backup sub-sites individually. Restorations are only possible to the same URL and it isn't possible to migrate a Network to a new URL.
