    Hi anoanar,

    This can happen if the host has done something to the server's temp directory.

    A workaround for this is to go to General Settings. Then in the address bar of your browser change the URL so instead of ending in "section=settings" it ends in "section=advanced".

    Then tick the checkbox next to "gzip_tmp_dir" and then copy the value from the text box for "local_tmp_dir" to the text box for "gzip_tmp_dir" then save settings.

    This should resolve the issue on your server.

    Jason.

    Cool solution!

    Now works like a charm.

    So is the plugin expecting full privileges in the wp/admin folder?

    thank you for the solution and for a great plugin!

    Hi Quirin,

    Glad it works now! Just needed a little tweak.
    Yes, the plugin expects full privileges in the admin area.

    Hi arianptc01,

    First thing to check is that you have free web space available. If you've filled your web space we can't backup. The way the backup works is to collect and compress all your data into a backup file, and then you can download that file, or send it to our online vault.

    If there is not enough web space for the backup file, it will fail like this. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to detect available space for your account since all hosts differ in their measurement methods and most don't let our scripts see the available space.

    Have you enabled the Backup parent WordPress folder? As looking at the path in our error message, you have enabled this, but looking at your WordPress paths, you shouldn't be using this feature. The feature is ONLY intended when WordPress is in a subfolder in your web space (which is inside public_html). Your WordPress appears directly to be in your public_html, and not in a subfolder in there. So I advise that be disabled since many hosts have various links, metadata, logs and backups above the public_html folder which shouldn't be needed in the backup and commonly cause issues.

    Regards,

    Jason

    Hi arianptc01, please also raise new topic if you still have issues. This one is marked resolved by a previous posted so could get confusing.
