pCloud WP Backup


pCloud WP Backup

The pCloud WP Backup plugin was created to help you backup everything on your blog with just one click and store it in the cloud in the most secure way possible.

Just create an account select a backup schedule, and we will take care of the rest.

  • The backup is done directly in the cloud, so you will have access to all your files on:
    Our Blog admin interface.
  • All your other devices (laptops, smartphones, tablets etc.) or via https://www.pcloud.com

Why you should always have a backup of your website and all its assets

Backups are the ultimate insurance for your website. They ensure that if something were to happen, and you lost all data on it including backup files (which should be regularly updated), then at least one copy of everything would still exist so an emergency situation can easily be resolved with little downtime or disruption.

Just set and forget with pCloud WP Backup. The plugin will backup all your important files automatically, so you can focus on what really matters!

Restoring backups

The plugin can not only create backups but if something goes wrong with your website it can restore a previous version in just one click


To guarantee your file’s safety, pCloud WP Backup uses TLS/SSL encryption, applied when information is transferred from your website to the pCloud servers. At pCloud data security is our top priority, and we do our best to apply first class safety measures. With pCloud, your files are stored on at least three server locations in a highly secure data storage area. Optionally, you can subscribe for pCloud Crypto and have your most important files encrypted and password protected. We provide the so called client-side encryption, which, unlike server-side encryption, means that no one, except you will, have the keys for file decryption.


Once installed, you will see a new menu \”pCloud Backup\”, open the menu and use the \”Authenticate with pCloud\” link to authenticate with your pCloud account.
After successful authentication, you will be able to enjoy the full functionality of the plugin.

Minimum Requirements

Perguntas frequentes

I am having issues with the plugin, it does not work as expected, what to do ?

Click \”Backup Now\” and on the upper / right corner of the page you will see small \”debug\” button, click on it and the black info window will show much more debugging / useful info related to the backup process. You can send the content of that black window to: support@pcloud.com and ask for support from the pCloud team.

Why the manual ( Backup Now ) works, but the automatic / scheduled does not ?

If the manual backup mode works it means that the plugin is functioning correctly, on the other hand – to work correctly in automatic ( scheduled ) mode the website needs to have enough visitors, so they can kick-up the backup process or at least someone needs to visit the admin page of the blog.

1st site - worked second time I ran it.2nd site - fails every time3rd site - worked after a few attempts.2nd site, error is always the same:"get_upload_dir_id() - response from the API does not contain the needed info"Support tells me "As explained the API response is not always accurate so you can simply re-try until the process finds a good API response."Sorry, I guess using pCloud for backup storage is not an option for me at this time.

L'idée est bonne, mais le plugin n'est pas fiable. Fonctionne une fois, deux fois, plus plus sans comprendre la raison.C'est dommage, car si il fonctionnait, cela serait vraiment top...

Of 20 websites I have 2 that are about 60mb. The two which are 60mb upload to pcloud just fine. There my joy ends. The rest just don't go up even if I change my php.ini file to max execution time etc. Very disappointing to have 4tb of pcloud space just waiting to be filled! This could be the best plugin if it was developed a lot more.

Having a WP instance with a 729MB database and 35 000 files, the plugin has never been able to perform a single backup. The support team does not reply to my calls for help.

I’m very happy That PCloud directly offers a backup solution for WP so I don’t have to rely on third parties. It’s working good so far and I hope that the plugin is continuing being developed. I have some suggestions: Choose which files to backup and which not (e.g. Database, Themes, Plugins) Integration with MainWP Possibility to make an automatic backup before updating WP system or plugins/themes Define where to save the Backup files in PCloud and allowing custom file names
