[resolved] How do I setup BackupWordpress correctly in multisite/network (5 posts)

    I have a multisite/network environment

    I installed the plugin and network activated it
    Backups shows up under Tools in every site, so I thought I needed to activate it for every site I wanted to backup. Then when looking at the backups for different sites the size is exactly the same and they all seem to contain a backup of everything.

    What is the correct procedure in setting up BackupWordpress in a multisite environment?

    Should the backup only be set up on the main site or what?

    The plugin should only be active on the main site. Backups will contain a complete backup of the whole multisite install (all files and database tables from all sites).

    Just for the sake of clarity, I assume by that you mean that is should NOT be network enabled?

    Just installed and then enabled on main site?

    Is this correct?

    Thanks for clarification.

    Yep exactly, don't network activate, just only activate it on a single site.
