Big Day Release: Prestashop Backup Manager

Prestashop Backup Manager allows backing up Prestashop files and databases to easily recover data in case of hard drive crashes. Configure copying to be performed automatically on a regular basis. Backup files and databases manually with one simple click. Consider the option of using Google Drive for safekeeping and save space, time and money.

Key features:

  • Files and databases backup
  • Possibility to set up automatic backup
  • Google Drive compatibility
  • Email notifications configuration
  • Backups information in the back-office

Backups are an important part of any operational disaster recovery plan. Both manual and automatic files and databases backup can be performed by Prestashop Backup Manager. You can be sure that data is captured in a consistent and usable state so that you could effectively restore your files and databases from the backup.
