BackWPup Free - WordPress Backup Plugin
3.0.11 gives redirect error... (29 posts)

    Hi

    Updated from 3.0.10 to 3.0.11 and afterwards canĀ“t get acces to wp-admin - it says: "net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS". If I rename the plugin directory i get acces again. I have tried reinstalling the plugin wit no luck.
    Guess there must be a bug?

    Any clues?

    Hi Moxtell,

    thank you for your hint. Please try to change the following line in the backwpup.php file

    if ( ! get_site_option( 'backwpup_about_page', FALSE ) )

    into:

    if ( ! get_site_option( 'backwpup_about_page', FALSE ) && $_REQUEST[ 'page' ] != 'backwpupabout' )

    That should fix the redirect problem on your installation.

    regards,
    Robert

    This solution works, confirmed.

    But it's a hassle to go around and change this on all sites with BackWPup installed. Any patch update coming soon to adress this issue? As it completely blocks acces to the admin while this error occurs.

    Robert's fix didn't work for me.

    Removing BackWPup set my sites back to work.

    Mll -- I am in the process of trying to fix right now. Mll, did you just delete the BackWPup plugin folder?

    Removing the folder worked for me. I tried the code change first, it didn't work.

    lynnmedia : I actually renamed

    /wp-content/plugins/backwpup

    to

    /wp-content/plugins/backwpup.bak

    Little help needed...

    First I renamed folder backwpup.bak and still received this error.

    Then I removed plugin folder via FTP and I still receive error (??!!).

    What now?

    Thanks!

    Have you "hard" refreshed your browser? "For Windows, holding down the Ctrl or Shift key while clicking on the refresh button works as does pressing Ctrl-F5. For Macintosh and all other operating systems, holding down the Shift key while clicking on the refresh button works as does pressing Command-Shift-R. Additionally, on Macintosh, holding down the Option or Command key while clicking on the Refresh button appears to work as well."

    We have released version 3.0.12 which will fix this issue. Please use the current version.

    I renamed the backwpup folder, removed the folder, tried renaming the plugins folder, stood and one leg and rubbed my belly. I was either stuck in the redirect loop or getting a server error. I wound up deleting and restoring my blog using the latest backwpup backup. Worked perfectly.

    Just updated to the new version and got the redirect loop. Checked backwpup.php and the new code is there... Tried a Hard refresh... still nothing. Removing my plugin folder... will report back with solution.

    Well. Deleting the backwpup folder removed the redirect loop. Tried to re-install and I can find no way to set up the backups at all. Only the Dashboard tab and about tab. There seems to be no "First Steps" box or any way to use this plugin now... I am dissapoint.

    Uninstalled the backwpup plugin from the plugins page. Then re-installed. This fixed my problem. Also installed Humility which will save me so much time... seriously.

    We deactivated & removed 3.0.11, cleared cookies, reinstalled 3.0.12 and are still getting a redirect error while trying to update settings.

    When we try to save options in the sugarsync tab we get the redirect error on this url http://xxxxxx.xxx/wp-admin/admin-post.php?action=backwpup

    A new install of 3.0.12 on a new website does not have this problem.

    looks like some lingering damage from 3.0.11.

    How to fix?

    Commenting lines 244 & 245 in backwpup.php (version 3.0.12) seems to be a workaround. I'm able to log in and my site works again. I haven't checked backup functionality yet.

    @drejfus Doesn't work for me

    Jumping from 3.0.10 to 3.0.12 broke.

    Confirmed commenting out the following two lines has worked on at 5 sites so far now.

    //display about page after Update
    //if ( ! get_site_option( 'backwpup_about_page', FALSE ) && $_REQUEST[ 'page' ] != 'backwpupabout' )
    //wp_redirect( network_admin_url( 'admin.php' ) . '?page=backwpupabout' );

    Can we just ditch that whole display on update feature? Really it isn't necessary.

    Darn - that will teach me to update this plugin on multiple sites again (got me twice now). Ouch - in for a long night...

    thanks mbrsolution for the tip. but it doen't have the positive side-effect of getting rid of the present bug.

    drejfus and holywebmaker's tip did work for me.

    Unauthenticated users still hit an infinite loop when they attempt to login. The plugin should be updated so that users are only redirected to the backwpup about page if they have the requisite capabilities. This worked for our two installations, and may work in general (I don't claim to know which capability would be capital-C Correct).

    if ( current_user_can('activate_plugins') && ( ! get_site_option( 'backwpup_about_page', FALSE ) && $_REQUEST[ 'page' ] != 'backwpupabout' ) )

    Please. Silly to have to install a second plugin to have to tame the excesses of another plugin.

    Looks like UpdraftPlus might be a less intrusive Dropbox Backup solution.

    i can only strongly support this thread in terms of humility.

    i understand the need for plugin authors to advertise their pro version, but please, there are lots of ways to do this unobtrusivly and without risking compatibility and functionality.

    this thread has the most recent posts, so the authors might take this into account.

    @bcobb thanks a lot for sharing your solution with us. Works perfect on my blog!

    Hopefully the authors provide a update asap. It's a lovely plugin and I very much understand they want to promote there pro version to gain the money to make such a nice plugin. And actually I don't care that much in which way they do (i'm using the free version, so hey, why should I even complain about even ads?) but really think such a error should have been discovered before release. To bad it din't, hopefully it doesn't scare less experienced users away...

    We have also tried uninstalling (deactivate, delete) and installing3.0.10, which was the last version that had worked.

    This did not work either.

    We do not want to have to keep patching code.

    Please give us a fix that works.

    Hi,
    I'm facing a similar problem. When I want to log in to my installation I get a redirect loop (I'm not even able to see the loginpage). Since it gives me this adress in the browser http://www.domain.de/subfolder/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.domain.de%2Fsubfolder%2Fwp-admin%2Fadmin.php%3Fpage%3Dbackwpupabout&reauth=1
    it kind of lets me feel that it's connected to backwpup XD

    I tried - renaming the pluginfolder, putting the lines as above in the code, deleting the folder, deleting the database tables for wpbackup (properbly a stupid thing to do.....), clear cache, clear cookies

    The possibilty to update the version wasn't even there since I can't even get the login page...

    EDIT
    solved by deactivation the plugin in the database via phpmyadmin....
