UpdraftClone – choose your clone region – multiple regions now available

Not yet used UpdraftClone? It’s well worth taking a look; its ongoing growth in popularity means that we are able to keep progressing with many new exciting features on its roadmap.

We’re please to announce that in the next UpdraftPlus release, UpdraftClone will support multiple regions, and users will be able to choose the region to launch the clone in freely. This is useful for speed (having the clone as near to you as possible), and can be essential for regulatory compliance (not exporting data into another territory, particularly if you live in a region with strong data protection regulations).

As can be seen in the screenshot below, there are 8 available regions: London, New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Singapore, Frankfurt, Toronto and Bangalore.

You all know by now that UpdraftPlus are committed to continually developing and improving the services and features of our plugins. Despite UpdraftClone only being released a few weeks ago, we are thrilled to announce that we have already released a new update in the form of users now being able to login via SSH in the browser.

This update means that from today, once you boot up any new clones that you have created, you will find a SSH login link in your account clone list.This new feature gives you more control over your clones and allows you to login via SSH in the browser.

We hope you enjoy this new feature. Be sure to visit UpdraftClone for further updates and information.

UpdraftPlus 1.15.2 (free) / 2.15.2 (paid) released

A new UpdraftPlus release is out. This introduces no new features, but fixes a few issues or sub-optimal behaviours in the previous release (which introduced our new UpdraftClone product, in case you’ve not yet seen it). The full changelog for this release is below; but the short version is that we recommend the update to everyone.

  • Fix: Asking the tour to cancel on the plugins page did not work
  • Fix: an issue where some jobdata did not get set which resulted in the backup email not being sent
  • Fix: a regression whereby network-activated plugins could get deactivated on multisites when restoring
  • Fix: When database encryption was active, UpdraftClone would fail
  • Tweak: There is now a ‘Rescan remote storage – log results to console’ link in ‘Advanced Tools’ to aid with debugging
  • Tweak: Fixes Migrate / clone tab contents showing on the Advanced tools tab
  • Tweak: Attempt to catch, work-around and log when the backup history cannot be saved due to too long a history relative to the MySQL server’s maximum packet size
  • Tweak: Re-factor and introduce the UpdraftPlus_Storage_Methods_Interface class
  • Tweak: Introduce the UPDRAFTPLUS_ENABLE_TOUR constant for power users; set it to false as part of your automated WP installation process (or manually) if you wish to disable all tour functionality.

Major new UpdraftPlus version released: WP sandbox site setup now as easy as copy & paste

UpdraftPlus is pleased to announce the revolutionary new “temporary clone” service is now live.

The Updraft Clone service allows you to create a cloned test site directly from UpdraftPlus settings in seconds.

Want to see how your site looks with updates such as upgrades, new themes and plugins, or a new layout and content or PHP version before it goes live? With Updraft Clone it’s never been so quick to create a temporary sandbox for changes you want to try.

It really is as simple as copy and paste for your WordPress site.

Unlike our Migrator feature, there’s no need to worry about hosting or installation of WordPress or plugins – it’s a cloud hosted service. You simply select your preferred versions of WordPress we take care of the rest.

This leaves you more time to test your site and, well, whatever you like!

Once you’re done, just throw away the clone. You can always create a new clone in seconds when you need it again…

Find out more here.

PS – Best of all, we’ve included free clone credits for all Premium customers so you can try the service free of charge right now. Just update to the latest version of UpdraftPlus, go to the ‘Migration / Clone’ tab in the settings page and select the UpdraftClone option.
