    Which "month" Daniel as I also have the same issue. Perhaps you could give us an idea of why it hangs with the combinations we are seeing before we start to look elsewhere ?

    January.

    Please check first that the server can reache himselve with a http request. In Version 3 is a test for that integrated.

    after that give feadback and we look again.

    Daniel, thanks for the feedback, yes there is something strange about the internal setup of my WP site. It is in a sub-domain and has .htaccess files in its root folder to allow friendly permalinks to work successfully. However, if I schedule simple posts in the future I get "missed schedule" issues and the post never gets published. I have done the usual things (switch out plugins/extent cron.php timeout from 0.01 to 20.0 etc etc), but still no joy.
    My issue with your plugin is perhaps only that it didn't make it obvious that something else was wrong. Apologies and I hope that v3 does perform some better self-diagnosis prior to allowing jobs to appear to hang when perhaps they dont really start in the first place.
    This is day 3 of googling for a solution, it must be out there somewhere :o)

    Hi Daniel,

    The first time that the backup has remained at 0%, I had a message in WP-Cron not work.

    So I installed WP-Cron view and I see my cron backup, and I do not have this message.

    Do you know where is log for this pluggin ?

    Daniel, I ve the same problem : stuck at 0% with a blank screen.

    It appends with my new hosting company : WPWEBHOST Shared Freedom Plan.

    I tried to curl my domain name from the server and I can see my content so I think the server can reach it self...

    The 2 folders backups and logs are there and writable (755).

    Any idea ?

    @Phil Broughton: BackWPup uses the sam meachanismen as wp-cron.
    If you get wp-cron work by trigering by hosters cron job or a eteren cron servce than you have a changs that it with Version 3 works. Or your Hoster corrects the self connection Problem.

    @lebrisjeremy: Check in Cron View the time when it next works. If it in Future or in Past ? Than pease check php logs for error massages that can give a hint for other Problems.

    @tonton_mtl: if ther a .htaccsses that prevents url acsses to Plugins folder or thomsing like that. seee massage for lebrisjeremy too.

    Daniel, I checked and there is no htaccess that prevent access to Plugins folder... Here is a link : http://cloud.tonton.ca/3W0w3P3s3k3O
    The plugins/backwpup/tmp/ folder is writable (755).

    I just tried on a fresh install of WP on a sub-domain. Just after WP install I installed BackWpUp and created a database job. I've the same problem, stuck at 0%, the "showworking" screen stays black with no error message... Do you think it's a problem caused by Shared Hosting plan with low ressources ? How to debug that ?

    @tonton_mtl: ask the hoster if scripts can made conections over http to itself. (to the Server)

    @chossamere: that looks like that isthe same Problem with loob back Connections.

    I hope we have Version 3 ready in the end of this month and can help a bit on this problems.

    Daniel, here is my hoster answer :
    "The backup plugin scripts will connect to the server. You can give it a try. If may have memory issue's if your plugin utilizes high resources. Kindly do note each account on shared hosting server is limited to 384 MB memory and your sites will hit internal server error's if you reach and/or exceed the limit. You can give it a try and let us know if you are encountering any issue's and we will assist you check further."

    @tonton_mtl: that can be a Problem. We hop we can releas in the end of this Mont a new Version weher we have optimized the Memory usage more. In momnet use a Tar archive and not the mail destionation for backups. If the memory not enoth for the MYsql dump u must wait for Version 3.

    Thank you Daniel.
    It's weird because I think I can run BackWPUp on server with less than 384MB of memory...
    I don't understand why the MySQL dump doesn't start at all.

    The aktuel Version use the wpdb class for dumping if you have many posts it will load the complte posts teble in memory.

    I next Version i will go to native mysql funktions that dont has this problem.

    For info, I could not get wp-cron working and this turned out to be because the call it makes tries to spawn a local HTTP request from the host providing server which gets blocked (a loopback request if you like). Using alternate wp cron worked in this case to allow cron to work (because it makes the client, not the server call the wp-cron task), however the backup plugin, once fired needs to do a local HTTP request which takes me back to where I started... Basically if my host provider does not allow local HTTP get requests, then this plugin doesn't work.
    I hope this is helpful, perhaps the plugin should document this under an FAQ ?

    I don't know if this helps anyone, but I too am stuck on 0%.

    My server at the moment is in a strange state because it is being moved from one host to another. For a while, I have http://www.myhost_name.com working on the new server, but http://myhost_name.com is still pointing to the old server and is inaccessible.

    Daniel, when you say 'make sure that the server can contact itself over http' is it that it is using myhost_name.com and not the www version.

    Could it be that others here have not mapped the myhost_name.com version to their site? I know that its common for people to block this so that search engines are not confused.

    If this is the case then perhaps there should be a setting to specify the preferred url for the server?

    For my own case, I will find out soon because the DNS changes will take full effect in 24 hours and the server will be contactable with and without the www.

    ahoy all,

    i was having same 0% error on shared hosting on fresh install of plugin, checked Error Logs of Apache and saw lots of

    [Sat Feb 02 17:55:07 2013] [error] SoftException in Application.cpp:601: Directory "/home/XXXXX/wordpress/wp-content/plugins" is writeable by group

    errors while BackWPup was sitting at 0%. when i simply changed the /wordpress/wp-content/plugins to not be group writeable, the plugin started to backup, though currently it never reaches 100% on the “Working” page, but the backup does seem to be complete and correct.

    hope this helps.

    peace
