Backup Options

Can anyone speak to the differences between Snapshot, BackWPup, and a basic cPanel backup?

Are any good for moving sites vs routine backups?

    Hey Christopher,

    The difference is thin, at least between the first two. The Cpanel backup is like a whole backup, if that makes sense, it takes up everything.

    I haven't used BackWPup, can it schedule backups? Snapshot can, which is a nice feature.
    For moving sites, you can import the database to the new database via phpmyadmin and that should work. The best part of Snapshot is the easy restore. You can go back to any point of time just with a click.

    Something like windows restore points. You can mess up anything and then go back easily :slight_smile:

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
