We’ve been hard at work continuing to add support of our new restore feature to other remote destinations. Today we’re excited to bring that feature to four more remote destinations.
Current BackupBuddy, Plugin Suite and Toolkit customers will find version 8.5.5 of the BackupBuddy plugin available as an automatic update from your WordPress dashboard (for licensed sites) or as a manual download from the iThemes Member Panel. Save time by updating all your sites at once from the iThemes Sync dashboard.
Restoring Backups from Your WordPress Dashboard
There are many reasons you need to restore your site from a backup. It could be something more serious like a hack all the way to a recent update breaking a registration form. No matter what the case, we get it. And that’s why we’ve developed the restore feature. We wanted to provide you with an easier way to restore your site or files with just a couple of clicks of a button.
As this restore feature has been working with Stash for the past few months, we’ve been taking customer feedback and improving the underlying structure of how we do backups to provide a better restore experience. We’re pleased to announce that those changes are now out.
The new BackupBuddy Dashboard Restore feature simplifies the restore process to a couple of clicks and today you can now restore from backups stored in the following remote destinations:
- Amazon S3
- Dropbox (v3)
Dropbox (v3) OAuth2 Support
We are extremely excited that Dropbox is getting a number of improvements with this release. The biggest is that we needed to reapply our Dropbox integration from being a development integration to a production integration.
This means that Dropbox v3 now offers better connect support and works by connecting through our OAuth server to give you a more secure connection and the ability to use the new restore feature.
You must setup a new Dropbox (v3) remote destination if you want to use our Restore feature with Dropbox.
How to set up Dropbox (v3) as a Remote Destination
Navigate to the BackupBuddy Destinations page and click on the Dropbox(v3) icon.
