I have BackWPup set up to run daily. However, it's been getting stuck on the "Create Backup Zip File..." step of the backup and running interminably; I've terminated scripts more than 14 hours after the jobs started. I have script execution limited to 300 seconds in the plugin settings.
I am using WordPress 2.9.1 on a DreamHost shared Linux server with PHP5 running as fCGI. The pre-ZIP backup size is between 50 and 60 MB at this point.
Any idea why it keeps running away? I can't stop the script without logging into SSH and guessing at which PHP process to kill.
I'll add the relevant (very long) backup logs if you think it'll help.
Other than this little issue, thanks for a great plugin! I'm going to let this latest runaway continue until after the next job runs to see what happens.
