Preview and restore individual files with the backup browser

Meet the backup browser.

We’ve put together a brand new way to restore your files within a backup. The new backup browser features individual file restores and file previews along with some behind-the-scenes magic to make everything generally faster. Now, you can preview a file to make sure it’s the one you need before you restore it.

Backup Browser

Browse your files

Even if you don’t need to restore anything, the backup browser is a pretty cool way to dig through some of your WordPress files and check them out. It has text file, image, and video previews, so it’s super easy for you to find and restore that awesome .gif your editor deleted.

Restore one file at a time

Now, when you click “View Backup,” you can either restore or download files instead of having to download or restore the entire backup. Pretty handy, right?

Preview your text files in style

We’ve hooked up @leaverou’s awesome Prism, which adds syntax highlighting to your PHP, JavaScript, CSS, and other files you have stowed away in your backups.

Admire your .gif collection

The new backup browser allows you to preview any of your images before you restore them. That way, you know for sure you’re restoring the file you need. (Even .gifs! :) )

Watch your videos

Did you accidentally delete that video of your kid’s coolest invention to date? Well, now you can watch and restore the little genius’ video for the rest of your family to enjoy.

Akismet + VaultPress

Welcome to 2014 and a special something that the VaultPress and Akismet teams have been cooking up. Today, we’re announcing a new Akismet + VaultPress bundle.

Akismet Bundle

When you sign up for Akismet, you can also create a VaultPress account at the same time. The bundle includes the Akismet Professional plan and the VaultPress Lite plan. In one stop, you’ll be set for spam protection and backups for your WordPress site.

Normally these two plans would cost $10 per month or $114 per year if you bought them separately. Buying the bundle costs $9 per month or $99 per year, putting a few dollars back in your wallet.

To signup for the bundle head over to akismet.com/plans/. Later on we’ll be adding the bundle option to the vaultpress.com/plans/ signup process as well.

If you have any questions please drop us a note via vaultpress.com/contact/.

The VaultPress plugin: now in the WordPress plugin repository

We’re happy to announce that the VaultPress plugin is now listed in the official WordPress plugin repository. As you may have already noticed, you will receive the standard WordPress notifications for any future releases. You’ll also be able to update the VaultPress plugin from your WordPress dashboard.

Our auto-update procedure will still be used when needed. For example, if we have to deploy a security hot-fix for a vulnerability that’s widely exploiting WordPress installations or for VaultPress performance upgrades. Feel safe, knowing we’ve got your back.

Accompanying this announcement, we also published the 1.4.6 maintenance release which fixes a couple of error notices if you are using PHP 5.4 on your server. Visit your WordPress dashboard and update VaultPress today.
