BackupBuddy plugin now supports Multisite import/export


The latest beta release of PluginBuddy’s BackupBuddy plugin includes the ability to backup, restore, and import within a Multisite network. Many of these features were available in the special Multisite version of BackupBuddy that was available in July to PluginBuddy members. Now they have been incorporated into BackupBuddy and, once the beta period is finished, will be available to all of the plugin’s users with a simple upgrade.

In the beta announcement at PluginBuddy, Nina East listed off the various operations you can pull off with the latest BackupBuddy update:

  • Multisite restores,
  • Multisite migration,
  • Single site import into a Multisite network,
  • Migrate a single site from one network to another, and
  • Duplication of a site within a network.

If you’d like a quick demonstration, PluginBuddy’s own Ronald Huereca will walk you through the Multisite importing process in a video just after the jump. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the last searched phrase in his browser.

Along with the network backups, restores and migrations, the latest update to BackupBuddy also enables network activation of the plugin. BackupBuddy is available from PluginBuddy starting at $75.

How many of you have been waiting for BackupBuddy to support WordPress Multisite networks this way? Will you be convinced to pick up a copy of their plugin now that they’ve added this feature?

  1. I’ve been looking for a multisite backup solution for three years. I love that it’s become easier every day to run a network of WordPress sites. That’s definitely the future of the program.

    Also, it’s going to be very nice to start migrating old stand-alone sites into networks. No more maintaining separate sets of plugins and themes! This makes it very easy to offer hosting packages for clients, as well.

  2. Heh, I guess I’ll need to check what I’m searching for before making more videos đŸ˜€

    Dustin and I saw that before uploading and started laughing hysterically like little children who just overheard something naughty.

    Anyways, hope you all like the changes.
