WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] Doesn't seem to complete (4 posts)

    I have large site (around 2gb) and the backup seems to be always running.

    It never seems to say it's done. Is this too large for the plugin?

    Gday,

    A 2gb site is going to take a very long time to complete considering that most servers have a max process limit of 5 mins.

    To speed it up and make it more robust for larger sites like yours I would consider hooking wp-cron up to a real unix cron so it can be run by the PHP cli and avoid that limit.

    Cheers,
    Mikey

    I am afraid, its taking for ever for me too. I have been running this for 20 minutes and it says Approximately unknown% complete. Whats happening?

    Gday mate,

    Only 20 mins? :-) My blog takes 2 hours to back up without the zip extension.

    I have removed the 'unknown%' message from v1.4.5 because it is a source of confusion.

    Cheers,
    Mikey
