BackWPup uses WordPress’ own cron job system (WP Cron) to execute scheduled backup jobs. In order for WordPress to “know” when to execute a job, its “inner clock” needs to be set regularly. That happens whenever someone (including yourself) visits your site.
If your site happens to not being visited for a period of time, WordPress’ inner clock gets sort of slow. In that case it takes an extra server-side cron job to regularly call http://your-site.tld/wp-cron.php and tell WordPress what time it is.
A simple way to find out whether WP Cron works as it should on your site is to create a new post and set its publishing date to some point in the future, i.e. 10 minutes from now. Then leave your site (that’s important), come back after 11 minutes and check whether your scheduled post has been published. If not, you’re very likely to have an issue with WP Cron.
Yuk! It says: “ERROR: No destination correctly defined for backup!”
That means a backup job has started, but BackWPup doens’t know where to store the backup files. Please cancel the running job and re-edit its configuration. There should be a Tab “To: …” in your backup job’s configuration. Have you set a backup target correctly?
A backup job has started, but nothing seems to be happening—not even when I re-start it manually.
- Open BackWPup->Settings
- Go to the Informations tab.
- Find Server self connect: in the left column.
- If it says something like (401) Authorisation required in the right column, go to the Network tab and set the username and password for server-side authentication.
- Try again starting the backup job.
- Open wp-config.php and find the line where it says if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’) ) .
- Somewhere before that line add this: define( ‘ALTERNATE_WP_CRON’, true );
Not really a solution, but a way to identify the real problem: see remarks on WP Cron at the top.
I get this error message: `The HTTP response test get a error “Connection time-out”`
BackWPup performs a simple HTTP request to the server itself every time you click run now or whenever a backup job starts automatically. The HTTP response test message could mean:
* Your host does not allow loop back connections. (If you know what WP_ALTERNATE_CRON is, try it.)
* Your WordPress root directory or backup directory requires authentication. Set username and password in Settings->Network.
* The Server can’t resolve its own hostname.
* A plugin or theme is blocking the request.
* Other issues related to your individual server and/or WordPress configuration.
I get a fatal error: `Can not create folder: […]/wp-content/backwpup-[…]-logs in […]/wp-content/plugins/backwpup/inc/class-job.php …`
Please set CHMOD 775 on the /wp-content/ directory and refresh the BackWPup dashboard. If that doesn’t help, try CHMOD 777. You can revert it to 755 once BackWPup has created its folder.
How do I restore a backup?
A restore feature has been added to the Pro version of the plugin. For more information check this post.The Pro version also provides a Restore Standalone App. To have these and even more features get BackWPup Pro Version.
When I edit a job the Files tab loads forever.
Go to Settings->General and disable “Display folder sizes on files tab if job edited”. Calculating folder sizes can take a while on sites with many folders.
I generated a list of my installed plugins, but it’s hard to read.
Try opening the text file in an editor software like Notepad++ (Windows) or TextMate (Mac) to preserve line-breaks.
My web host notified me BackWPup was causing an inacceptable server load!
Go to Settings->Jobs and try a different option for “Reduce server load”.
Can I cancel a running backup job via FTP?
Yes. Go to your BackWPup temp directory and find a file named backwpup-xyz-working.json where “xyz” is a random string of numbers and characters. Delete that file to cancel the currently running backup job.
Can I move the temp directory to a different location?
