    I hate the damn plugin. Instead of creating www directory and database backups it creates 5 different backup files, and none of them are called the www directory.
    Hard to believe that this is the leader. All-In-One backup is written to be MUCH easier to use, as it uses standard backup files.. It is better to MANUALLY backup using phpmyadmin to get the DB and either cpanel's file manager or FTP to get the www folder, than to use this product because you can manually restore your files when you have a DB and www backup. How would you manually restore the 5 files that updraft produces? I sure don't need more things to learn.

    Hi Hogan,
    last year I built a website with your videos and I did back up using UpdraftPlus. I've lost that site (it expired). I bought new domain and new host. How can I restore my previous website to new domain and new host ?

    Would restoring the plugins restore the version of the plugins at the time of the backup? For example, if I updated a plugin and this caused a conflict, would restoring an earlier version fix this issue?

    Nice video! I just have one doubt: would this work for a WordPress network as well? Or shall I copy and restore each WordPress site in it individually?

    Another good video. Thanks. Have you got any experience on building mail lists? Maybe you could do a tutorial on some plug-ins for that purpose, plus some ideas on how to actually ask people to join it – pop-ups, sidebars, images with call of attention or whatever.

    Have you considered a tutorial on membership and user directory plugins like s2 Member and Ultimate Member? I need to build a site for a home owner association which offers restricted access to some data and a directory of registered home owners. Thanks in advance.
