Bloggers are constantly looking for backup solutions for their WordPress-powered blogs. And those who have tried backing-up and restoring or moving their WordPress blogs to another webserver or web host provider know how much time that can take.
That’s why I tested WP Twin…
You’ve probably read the WP Twin review, so here’s a quick update.
WP Twin (version 2.40) works in WiredTree. You just need to communicate first with WiredTree support.
Specifically, you will need to request support to change your webserver’s php handler to suphp. In addition, you will need to have the permissions changed such that the PHP scripts are run by the script owner, and not by “nobody.”
That’s it! 🙂
WiredTree support is very responsive, and they will act on your request right away.
They’re proactive, too. The webserver I was testing was using Litespeed. Since there’s no suPHP on Litespeed, they went ahead and installed suEXEC for Litespeed. That definitely helped save time and money!
Anyway, if you want to easily back-up your blog, or place it in a mirror site (for disaster recovery purposes), you can use WPTwin and deploy your blog in Hostgator, or in WiredTree.
According to Wilson Mattos, WP Twin works in web hosts that use cPanel, but I haven’t tested the other webhost providers.
