WordPress 3.0.2, the first mandatory security update in quite a while, was released not too long ago. The update patched an exploit which allowed an Author-level users to gain access to the site well above their user level, but the real story here is the overall efficiency of the volunteer developers. With a team unpaid volunteers keeping WordPress in tip-top shape, you might be surprised to hear that this particular update went from initial disclosure of the exploit to final release in no more than four hours! That particular time frame is almost unheard of, even amongst commercial projects. To further sweeten the pot, the VaultPress team automatically pushed a hotfix the next day to all VaultPress-enabled blogs, ensuring that all VaultPress users were protected from the exploit, even if they had not had a chance to apply the 3.0.2 update. With such an efficient team of volunteer developers, and […]

There are many ways to backup WordPress, but none as easy and thorough as VaultPress. VaultPress is one of the newest Automattic projects and is definitely a powerhouse in its field. One of the many things that sets VaultPress apart from the rest is its set it and forget it ease of use. Simply install the VaultPress plugin and watch as it begins to analyze and backup your database, plugins, themes, and uploads. After the first backup is complete, VaultPress will update your backup whenever a change is made, even for something as trivial as adjusting a setting. The result is a series of up to the minute full backups ready to be restored as soon as you need them. In contrast, iDrive is VaultPress’ closest competitor.
