BlogVault – History

BlogVault provides you a comprehensive History page that lets you manage all your WordPress backups with ease. From here, you can view the list of backup versions that BlogVault has maintained for you over the past month.

How to find a specific backup version from the BlogVault dashboard

When you backup your WordPress site regularly, it is important to be able to differentiate and find specific backup versions. This is why the BlogVault dashboard allows you to access overviews of your backup versions, as a part of the Backup module.

The History tab is the first under the backup module of the BlogVault dashboard

 

The History feature allows you to access the last 30 backups of your WordPress site, in the form of a timeline which gives you the day, date, and time when each backup was performed.

The History page is in the form of a timeline that gives you when exactly each backup was performed.

 

Since all the backups made in the last 30 days are available on this timeline, you can differentiate them by the date and time the backup was made, or by one of the following details:

1. Notifications about new posts

 

When you add a new post and BlogVault backs up your site, a note is automatically added to the backup version

 

2. Updates on your WordPress site (if any were made)

 

When you make a plugin, theme or WordPress Core update, BlogVault makes a note about the backup version that has these changes.

 

3. Your WordPress site’s details: The Core version, theme, posts, pages and comments on your site

 

The WordPress Core version, comments and posts that you had on your site at the time of backup are also all noted in the backup versions

 

4. Table and file details: Tables, files and plugins on your WordPress site at the time of the backup

 

The tables and files at the time of the backup are also noted on every backup version.

 

5. Notes that you might have added to differentiate the backup version

 

Notes can help you differentiate backup versions too

 

Ease and Accessibility

Once you have found the backup version you were looking for, you can use it to perform backup operations. This means you can perform any of the following functions from the History page:

  1. Migrate any of the backup versions to a new domain or a new URL on the same hosting account, or to an entirely different hosting account
  2. Create staging environments of any of the 30 backups on the BlogVault dashboard
  3. Automatically restore your WordPress site from any one of the backup versions on the History page
  4. Download files and tables or entire backups from any of the backup versions listed
  5. Upload any of the backup versions to your Dropbox account

 

All you have to do, is select a specific backup version and click on the operation you would want to perform. It really is that simple!
