Scheduled Backup time out (14 posts)

    Hello there,

    We're trying to configure scheduled database backup to an email, but it's not working. Manual backup works just fine, but not scheduled.

    Here's a sample activity log:


    Activity ID: 12
    Activity Type: Scheduled Backup
    Settings: Emailed

    Completion: Timed out

    Backup Size: 0 B (0 files)
    Total Size: 0 B (0 files)

    Start Time: 9th Aug 2012 11.50.38 AM
    End Time: 9th Aug 2012 1.11.56 PM

    --

    The backup timed out too many times and no progress was made on any attempt. Your server may be running extremely slow at this time - try scheduling the backup during a quieter period.

    The site is in development, we're running on a dedicated server, so there's plenty of power. I tried setting it to hourly and browsing the site at the same time to make sure wp-cron is triggered, but if I go to Monitor running backup it says the script timed out even after 14 seconds. If I stay on the monitor page, it will get to "Sending email" then timeout again, even tho the email did get sent and the backup is actually completed.

    Any ideas what could be wrong?

    I'm having this same issue as well; plus it looks like the backup I have scheduled didn't even try running at all this week. I'd appreciate any help.

    Hi guys,

    Can you drop in the event log for the timed out activity? It will give an idea of where the backup got to.

    Here's the log from my most recent scheduled attempt.

    20th Aug 2012 2.17.35 AM Warning The backup timed out too many times and no progress was made on any attempt. Your server may be running extremely slow at this time - try scheduling the backup during a quieter period.

    I understand the error (everything's busy), but I've yet to find a "quieter period" to schedule the backups. Is there a particular time of the day that's recommended?

    Hi amypeveto,
    Does manual backup work for you?

    Hi Olivier,
    What version of PHP are you running? Should be visible in your website control panel somewhere.

    Manual backup has not worked for me, although I haven't tried in a couple weeks.

    Hi,

    Can you download the Development version from here and try it:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wponlinebackup/developers/

    You'll need to uninstall and delete the plugin then install this with Plugins -> Add New, Upload option.

    If you still have an issue with this Release Candidate for 2.2.6 we can get over to you a trace version to give a log of what the plugin is doing when the problem happens, which will hopefully narrow down where the problem lies.

    Thanks,

    Jason.

    Hm. Scheduled backup worked this past Monday. I'll post again if it doesn't work next week.

    Hi,
    I am having similar problems although I don't quite understand the computer jargon. Even though it says all of the backups have failed my webhost is saying I'm backing up 200 Mb every day. How could that be?

    I am completely lost when it comes to all these computer things. I am simply a baker learning blogging as I go.
    I would hugely appreciate any help. In baby language please.

    The Event Log is huge and is as follows:

    Hi The Naked Baker,

    Best to start a new topic with your issues as they aren't always the same as other people's and it can make threads quite big. But no matter, I'll give you some help here. Just start a new topic if you have any further questions.

    Please go to General Settings in the plugin, and add the following filesystem exclude, exactly as shown here:

    wp-content/backup

    Then run the backup again, and it should stop backing up the contents of the backup folder - it seems you have another backup plugin storing backups locally. Our plugin is trying to back those up not knowing what they are.

    Try the backup again and it should work. As mentioned, raise a new topic if you still have issues.

    Regards,

    Jason

    Hi,

    have the same problem with scheduled backup for last 2 months also:

    Warning The backup timed out too many times and no progress was made on any attempt. Your server may be running extremely slow at this time - try scheduling the backup during a quieter period.

    but when I try to make manual backup - all is ok and perfect

    PHP 5.2.17 / Apache 2.2.22

    very appreciate for any help and thanks a lot for this plugin

    Hi liquidblasted,

    Could you open a new topic for your issue, please?
    When you do so, please post the full event log for one of the timed out activities so we can see what is happening. Also try once more before doing so as there was server updates this week which may or may not have already resolved something.

    Thanks,

    Jason
