Backuper is a slick backup module for SilverStripe. It gets a database dump and packs it with all files in the assets/ directory as compressed archive. Great for migration of pages through easy-to-use export and import functionality.



composer require level51/silverstripe-backuper


  • Generating and loading a database dump
  • Archiving and loading assets
  • Downloading backup file to local disk
  • Uploading backup to Google Drive
  • Restoring backup from manual upload or Google Drive



  • Just install it and do the classical dev/build?flush=all.
  • In order to upload large backup files, you have to increase the maximum upload filesize of your webserver configuration. For nginx have a look at: https://easyengine.io/tutorials/php/increase-file-upload-size-limit/
  • For Google Drive Backup functionality: Make sure that the plugin can store and delete an accesstoken in a textfile located in the _config folder. Hence, user www-data requires full file permissions for the plugin's _config folder. Run: chown www-data _config && chmod 700 _config
