A database snapshot is a quick copy of all tables of the current website in the database.

WPvivid Database Snapshots allows you to quickly create snapshots of your WordPress database, and restore the database from a snapshot in 1-click.

Why Use A Database Snapshot?

A database snapshot can usually be created in seconds, which is much faster than creating a backup for the database. If you need a quicker rollback solution for safely testing WordPress database-related changes, use a snapshot.

Note: A snapshot contains database only. If you need to back up the full site or files, you can use our WPvivid Backup Plugin.
