Backing Up Automatically your Wordpress Site

Shit happens, thus you want a good wordpress backup plugin for these bad situations. What are the requirements from a backup plugin? Automatic on schedule Automatic before any update to the site (Optional) Can save the backup to a remote location (S3 Amazon server) Easy to use restore (Instead of just unzipping the files and importing the DB) Standalone restore option (Optional) - So if the site got destroyed, you can still restore Well maintained Multisite support (Option to backup every mini site independently) Comfortable price So, after going over the candidates, I have removed non-relevant plugins which don't give me my minimal requirements, and it seems that the difference between plugins will actually be the following watered down requirements: Automatic before site update (Called "Real time backup" in some places) Standalone restore app Good multisite support (to backup/restore specific site) Price My final candidates are: BackWpUp UpDraftPlus Wp Vivid backup JetP
