TLDR: We’ve completely revamped our backup process to make sure it never fails. We’ve also redesigned the backup interface to make it even easier to use, and you can now decide to exclude some files and tables from your backups if you want to.
We have slightly improved our safe update technology. This should decrease the number of failed updates that you might experience from time to time. We’ve also added a new “Re-Sync Data” button to WP Umbrella bulk actions!
Last, but least, you can now read plugin changelogs without leaving our application.
This is our monthly product update for June 2022.
Before jumping into WP Umbrella’s figures, we would like to thank all the people who came at our booth at the WCEU. ✌️
Before jumping into this product update, let’s start with our meme of the month!
We’re excited to announce 2 major improvements to WP Umbrella!
First off, we’ve completely revamped our backup process to make sure it never fails.
In a nutshell, we will automatically adapt the size of the backup batches to your server capacity. This new process is lighter and should allow us to backup any website, regardless of its size or server PHP memory limit.
We’ve also redesigned the backup interface to make it even easier to use, and you can now decide to exclude some files and tables from your backups if you want to.
Secondly, we have slightly improved our safe update technology. This should decrease the number of failed updates that you might experience from time to time.
To benefit from these new processes, you need to update the plugin.
Hopefully, you can easily update WP Umbrella on all your websites in just one click from the Bulk Actions tab. 😏
You probably didn’t know this, but WP Umbrella automatically re-syncs your data every 2 hours. This is why a plugin update might sometimes look available in the dashboard even though you have already updated the plugin.
Since we cannot increase the re-sync frequency because we would be blocked by most hosting providers, we’ve added a new “Re-Sync Data” button to WP Umbrella bulk actions!
This button will allow you to quickly and easily re-sync your data to ensure that it is accurate and up to date.
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve also made a small improvement to WP Umbrella’s application that we think you’ll find really helpful – now you can access plugins’ changelog without leaving our application!
You only need to click on view changelog under the plugin name to open it in a modal.
This means that you can easily stay up-to-date on the latest changes for all of your wordpress plugins, and save time in the process.
At the moment, this feature is only available for plugins listed in WordPress official plugins directory.
And that’s it for June!
Enjoy your summer break guys!
The 1-click restoration for backup will be ready for when you come back! 🙂
