Schedules » All


This feature is only available in Pro. Schedules can be setup as frequently as you want. Scheduling in Duplicator is very straight forward. No complicated configuration screens.Duplicator supports the creation of multiple schedules by either Day, Week or Month. If you would like to backup your site several times per day you can do this by creatingmultiple daily schedules.

The “Schedules » All” screen is the main interface for managing all schedules that have been created. Schedules are used to automatically create a package at aspecific time. Schedules can be ran at any time and as frequently as needed. It is however recommend to space out and only run your a schedule when absolutely needed.Creating packages are expensive on your server resources and should be used with caution especially on shared budget hosts.

Schedules use predefined templates to run from. Templates allow you to choose which files and database tables you would like to make as part of your backup process.A schedule can also be tied to a storage endpoint and pushed upto the cloud as part of its runtime directive.
