UPDATE: Due to some problems with the WordPress.org plugin repo, we needed to release AWB 2 with the current feature set. The feature mentioned below will be going into beta soon.
We were going to be releasing AWB 2.0 soon (like a week ago) but now we’re reworking a gigantic part of the plugin so that it doesn’t backup the entire site as one big zip, but instead uploads each individual file and only uploads files that have been changed since the last update. This will have 3 main benefits:
- Cuts down on wasted bandwidth
- Cuts down on wasted storage on s3 (even though it’s dirty cheap)
- Allows gigantic sites to be backed up without a ton of memory issues.
We’re going to be dropping at least one more beta pretty soon and then release the final version of v2. It’s going to be fantastic!
