I recently switched servers which meant I had to move about three WordPress websites. I also had to move a client’s website from a development server to the live server. If you’ve ever had to do this for a WordPress website then you know how much of a hassle it can be and how many things could go wrong. I’ve moved about four WordPress websites over the past few years and it has always been a pain. But not anymore! It is much easier now that I’ve found this awesome plugin called BackupBuddy and it works great. Check it out!
BackupBuddy is the only complete solution for WordPress backups. Backup, Restore, Migrate.
Backup your entire WordPress install. Including the widgets, themes and plugins. Backup to your server, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, or e-mail. Quickly and easily restore your site on the same server or migrate to a new server with a different domain and database. The process is easy, fast, and reliable.
The best WordPress, Multisite and BuddyPress resource and support site on the web.
I recently became a member of WPMU DEV. I wasn’t sure how it would help me so I signed up for a monthly subscription first. I was working on some WordPress websites and needed some technical assistance. I started posting on the WPMU DEV forums and all of the sudden, these experts were responding to me and answering my questions! All of the sudden it was like a had a team of people to consult with and provide valuable information quickly. They’ve already helped me save time on more than a few projects, so I decided to buy a full membership for a year. As a web designer/developer, this kind of support is a must! They don’t just offer support for their own products either. They will advise you on the best solution that meets your specific needs, even if it means using a plugin they didn’t develop…. although they do develop a lot of cool plugins. I even posted a small project and found a developer to help me out on a membership site.
If you are using WordPress or developing for WordPress, I would recommend that you try this out. Sign up for one month, just to see how useful it is. I think it’ll change your life… and make things a lot easier.
