Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. Data loss is a very common experience of computer users. A 2008 survey found that 66% of respondents had lost files on their home PC. The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time, according to a user-defined data retention policy, typically configured within a backup application for how long copies of data are required.

Hot Backup Manageris WordPress plugin, which allows to create database and/or files system backups and restore them. This plugin is created for owners of WordPress sites and will be handy in site maintainance.

Backups creation is performed according to schedule configuration and not required manual support. The plugin is developed with usage of WordPress core CRON implementation, it means that you don’t need access to your hosting panel (or whatever you use) to setup CRON jobs.

The plugin could notify owners about successful or unsuccessful backup creation by email. Additional option is ability to attach backup file to email.

After successful backup creation it is possible to send backup file to remoteFTPhost or to online storage provider likeDropboxorAmazon S3.

Each backup could be restored from the plugin. The restoring process is quite simple and could be started by clicking a restore button for certain backup.
