Automatically create snapshots before running WP Reset tools

Enable the option if you want WP Reset to automatically create snapshots when you start any of the reset tools. For example, if the option is enabled and you decide to delete all transients, WP Reset would first create a snapshot before deleting any transients. So, in case you decide to revert changes, you can quickly restore the snapshots and get your transients back.

Please note that not all tools support auto snapshots. This option is available only for those tools that modify the database and not any files. Each tool's description will tell you what gets modified and what doesn't.

Automatically create snapshots when doing updates and manipulating plugins & themes

If you're not completely sure what a specific WordPress update holds, and what it will do to your current setup (and you never actually do), enable this option to have WP Reset create snapshots before any update. An automatic snapshot will be created in the following situations:

  • when a plugin is activated, deactivated, updated or deleted and it will contain a DB snapshot + the plugin files
  • when a theme is activated, deactivated, updated or deleted and it will contain a DB snapshot + the theme files
  • when WP core is updated and it will contain only the DB snapshot

Automatically upload user-created snapshots to the cloud

Instead of manually pushing the user-created snapshots to the Cloud, you can turn on this option and let WP Reset automatically do that.

After saving the changes, from the moment you create a new snapshot, WP Reset will upload it to the Cloud you are connected to.

Automatically upload automatically created snapshots to the cloud

Similarly to the previous option, you can instruct WP Reset to automatically upload snapshots.

This option will automatically all automatic snapshots, like those created before updates.

Automatically delete snapshots after they are uploaded to the cloud

If you don't want snapshots on your server, turn on this option and allow WP Reset to automatically erase a snapshot after uploading it to the Cloud.

Automatically delete automatic snapshots

Choose one of the options when you want WP Reset to automatically delete snapshots for you. By enabling the option, you won't have to worry about snapshots taking up too much of your local space. This option does NOT delete snapshots stored in the cloud.

The plugin can automatically delete snapshots after:

  • the selected number of days
  • there are more than X snapshots available (in this case, the oldest one gets deleted first)
  • when total snapshot size exceed a specific size

Export snapshots table by table 

If you run into problems while creating and exporting snapshots, which may happen in situations where you have a lot of tables in the database or if tables are huge, you can enable this option. The export will run slower, but WPR will process tables one at a time and thus avoid running into "low memory" and "max execution time" problems.

Show the "WP Reset" menu to administrators in the admin bar

By default, WP Reset shows a menu in the admin bar. This allows admins to quickly access WPR functions while administrating the site, no matter where they're located in the WordPress dashboard. Users love the "Create Snapshot" action on the menu as they can create snapshots without leaving the admin page they are on.

Optimize tables before creating snapshots

If you want to improve accuracy when using the "Compare snapshot to current data" tool, enable this option. Please note that while this option is turned on, the creation of snapshots may be a bit slower than usual since the plugin will also optimize it.

Throttle AJAX requests

Some servers allow only a limited number of requests per second. If that's the case with your server, turn on the option to slow down all snapshot-related AJAX requests.

Fix MySQL zero dates 

Enable this if you encounter errors related to date columns with zero dates when importing or downloading snapshots from the cloud.

Alternate MySQL connection

The Alternate MySQL connection feature provides a solution for connection errors encountered during snapshot exporting or importing processes. By enabling this feature, users can seamlessly overcome connectivity issues, ensuring smoother and more reliable management of snapshots within their WordPress environment. This enhancement offers greater flexibility and resilience, empowering users to maintain data integrity during site management tasks.
