  1. UPDRAFT IS A VERY VERY CONFUSING PLUGIN.

    IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL.

    IF SOMEONE HACKS MY SITE DELETE ALL PLUGINS. THEN HOW CAN I RESTORE MY SITE?

    THEY WANT US TO LOGIN AND CLICK RESTORE. BUT WHAT IF SOMEONE DELETED MY PLUGINS?

    OR MY HOSTING COMPANY DELETES MY SITE. HOW CAN I GO TO ANOTHER HOSTING COMPANY?

  2. Thanks for the informative video. Does the backup feature backup the entire site, including posts and pages? I don't see these listed on the backup options. Thank you.

  3. 5:58 Uff that is SO MUCH WORK… so OVERCOMPLICATED!!!! just 1 file, 1 download… why download 5 separate files, upload 5 separate files, wait for 5 separate files to be completed… welcome to the stone age, windows 95 is no longer a thing.

  4. Grt information… I have one doubt, can I take more than 1 site backup with 1 email id. Is any option available ?
    Or I need to take seperate email for seperate site ? Your answer would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    "…No worries, all you have to do is to get the fuck out of here…"
    This is almost how I heard it or at least expected it to be XD

  6. i tried what you did.. i backup from my site and then restored it to another site… it broke my new site and i cant login.. i dont know why… i did it correctly.. has anyone have the same problem

  7. I need to restore my site from a backup. I didn't start the migrate process. I only have the backup files. And I get an ssl error after restored. The site doesnt show up. I am willing to pay to fix this. Please help.

  8. Thanks for the video! How does one get in touch with an UpdraftPlus individual?? I can't find a contact on their website. If you cannot get a hold of anyone, is it worth buying any of their products??

  9. For the one I'm working on, there are 12 exclusions already there on install. Do I need to scrutinize these, or are they just standard exclusions that prevent the plug-in from messing up / doing the unnecessary? Elegant Themes user, off and on for about a decade.

  10. This tutorial is not helpful at all, I want to see it on the fly. Just try to give a little more effort like this guys did on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJI-ZMD7qWE

  11. I dont believe this is accurate regarding migrate from backup.
    I did this and all the links sent me to the original domain. Even the meta links to log into to new domain sent me to the old domain.
