[Plugin: BackWPup] Plugin not working, one solution (7 posts)

    Just figured out how to get this plugin working and thought I would share for others.

    I am using the latest plugin and wordpress version. Like others, I had been seeing a blank black screen of the plugin working, and in my case no log files. I added this to my functions file:

    define('ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true);
    define('WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/tmp');

    But it appears that the plugin was not creating the temp folder. When I manually created the temp folder, viola! The plugin started working.

    Hope this helps someone. Maybe a bug, Daniel? Thanks Daniel for sharing a great plugin!

    Thank you! Your edits made the plugin functional for me as well.

    Could you please clarify which functions file you are referring to and where in the file you added those lines?
    I have a doubt because in the first FAQ the author says that the line define('WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/tmp'); is in the wp-config.php file while you say you added it to your functions file (the only functions files I have are the functions.php files in my theme and child-theme directories).
    Thanks a lot!

    Sorry lucabarbetti.

    I meant to say that the code above was added to the wp-config file.

    don't be sorry, your post meant to be helpful and it is helpful indeed. The only problem is that, given my lack of experience, I need to know exactly where I am supposed to add new code in order to avoid the DISASTER! sign blinking.
    Thanks a lot for your help, have a good day!

    Yup, setting the WP_TEMP_DIR fixed the problem for me. I'm using WordPress 3.5 and BackWPup 2.1.17.
