Improvements to VaultPress Backups

An alternate ad banner idea that we didn't end up using, loosely organized around the concept that VaultPress goes to eleven.

It recently came to our attention that we were missing a few key files from our WordPress backups, namely:

  • .htaccess
  • favicon.ico
  • robots.txt
  • wp-config.php
  • language files (when present)

Our goal is to provide you a full backup of your WordPress, and while these files are easy to re-create, you shouldn’t have to! You don’t need to take any action if you’re a current VaultPress customer. New snapshots will automatically backup these additional files, which will make restores easier.

For our customers who are on metered hosting plans, there’s some cool stuff on the way. Stay tuned. :)

As a side note, we’ve just posted an overview of the features in VaultPress for folks who are considering signing up for the beta. Check it out, and let us know what you think. We’ll also be attending WordCamp Portland in September – hope to see you there!

      We’re now able to go through SSH for most operations instead of HTTP, which lessens the load of the real-time replication and protection of your sites. Contact support after you sign up and they can give you more information.
