[resolved] BackWPup Fails to Complete (3.0.10 and others) (4 posts)

    I am still have intermittent problems with BackWPup hanging before it completes. Sometimes it works fine, completes backup in about 75 seconds. Other times it stops during the process of compressing all the files. I have set the parameter to restart each operation.

    I am not an expert, but I am thinking it might be a script timing out. I get a message in the log (see below) that the maximum execution time for a script is 30 seconds. I am thinking that BackWPup hangs when the compression operation or script takes longer than 30 seconds. I assume this is set by the site host. However, I don't think there is anything I can do to change that. Is there any work around or change that can be made in the program code so the script can run to completion? Thanks.

    Log File for Successful Run Follows: unsuccessful run stops at the message "Trying to create backup archive. Compression method is PCLZip."

    Also you might want to exclude /home/content/10/nnnnn/html/stats/logs from your backup since it's not readable and causes a warning.

    Thank you, Caspar. I already had Restart on every main step selected based on an earlier post. Since my archive size that sometimes fails is only about 80 MG in size, I set the Restart on archive creation to 50. That worked when I tried the job, even though it was a bit slow taking 118 seconds. I will see if the problem reappears, and, if so, I will lower the archive setting again.

    I have shared hosting on a major vendor site, and I guess it sometimes gets so busy that it really slows down the script execution.

    Thanks again. This has been a very good plugin, even the free version.
