We’ve been using and recommending EZPZ OCB as a simple but effective solution for clients who would like to backup their WordPress sites. Well today it looks like the project has been abandoned, the plugin files have been deleted from the WordPress plugin repository and there are discussion threads full of frustrated users.
As happens from time to time when a great plugin is left to die, we went through the latest options for easy one-click and automated backups and have settled back on an old favorite that has been updated with increasing frequency: BackUpWordpress
So far, so good. It will perform daily automated backups of both source files and your mysql databse. How do you like BackUpWordPress? Any other open-source solutions we should check out?
