Backup Pro

Redundant, simple, and reliable backup for WordPress, ExpressionEngine (2 & 3), CraftCMS, & Prestashop websites, Backup Pro adds simple, 1 click, file and database backup and database restoration. Backup Pro, first released and constantly under active development since June 2011, allows for abstract and redundant storage of your website backups through any combination of Local Storage, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files, Google Cloud Storage, FTP, SFTP, Dropbox, and even an Email Inbox (if that’s your thing).

Both the file and database backups can be configured to a granular level that’s never been available till now. Backups are compressed into the popular zip file format to save space and are readily available for download and extraction on any platform (Windows, Mac, *nix). Backup Pro allows you to finely configure how your backups are stored, and will even monitor your usage and manage it for you. You can set how many file and/or database backups to store as well as how much hard disk space to use for your backups; and any combination of the 2. Backup Pro will remove the oldest backups first, ensuring you always have the most recent backups available.

More, Backup Pro includes an Integrity Agent. The Integrity Agent is an autonomous system that’ll both transparently monitor your backup state, so YOU KNOW when a backup was missed, and even check your backup files themselves to ensure they can be used in recovery. Think about it. NEVER again bother taking time out of your busy life to manually check your backups to ensure you can recover from disaster. Now, and only with Backup Pro, you KNOW your backups are useful for disaster recovery BEFORE disaster strikes.

Features

Remote Storage Options

When it comes to backups, redundancy is always a good call.

Backup Pro makes this easy with integration for Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles (both US and UK), FTP, and even straight to your email inbox. Plus, you’re able to use all 3 at the same time so you should always have access to your data.

Even more, you can control that remote data from within Backup Pro. Want to keep copies only on the remote system? You can do that.

Peace of Mind is Built In

The Backup Pro Integrity Agent is all about providing peace of mind. Any good disaster recovery plan DEMANDS inspecting your backups to ensure their usability in a real disaster situation. Can you extract them? Do they contain the data you need them to? Are backups happening when you say they should? Have changes to the system preventing Backup Pro from doing its job? Any and all situations are covered and, most important, automated away so you NEVER have to worry about them. Ever.

Single and Common Format

When you want your backup data, chances are you want it now and you want it in a universal format. Backup Pro, and (ish), gets this so stores all backup data as the standard archive format: ZIP.

No matter where you host your files, or where you want to extract your backups, be from Linux to Windows, or Mac to Linux, or anything at all, you can with ease.

Restore Database Online

Both Backup Pro and Backup Pro(ish) make it easy to recover from errors and issues. With a single click you can take your site from broken and unusable to stable and online.

Insanely Customizable

Rarely is my backup solution your backup solution. Options and customization are crucial to keeping your data intact and available and Backup Pro is well aware of this. Nearly every area of your backup strategy is customizable and made to bend to your will.

Granular File Backups

A powerful feature of Backup Pro is the ability to tell it to only backup exactly what it is you want to backup. Have files in your a directory you don’t want to backup? Not a problem. Backup Pro allows for exclicit, 1 to 1 matching, and a powerful regular expression implementation that’ll allow you to get VERY granular in what’s backed up and what’s not.

Automation Ready

Any good backup solution has to have the ability to run on its own, without you having to manually click the shiny red BACKUP button.

Backup Pro were built with automation in mind and fits nicely for both Cron controlled systems and Automat:ee. In fact, if you have Automat:ee installed, you don’t have to do anything to integrate; that’s baked right in.

Hard Drive Friendly

Stale backups are bad backups and space for backups is finite. Knowing this, Backup Pro includes a watch dog process that’ll allow you both, explicitly set how many database and file backups to retain AND how much disk space to allot for your backups. You NEVER have to worry about backups taking up too much disk space or exhausting your resources.
