Memory issues (9 posts)

    Hi,

    As soon as I installed the plugin and started the first backup I got an email from my webhost about processes using excessive amounts of memory.

    Please check my post about the issue: http://sangatpedas.com/free-memory-eating-wordpress-backup-to-dropbox-plugin/

    Gday sangatpedas,

    Memory usage is something that I am trying to address. The problem is, for large websites like yours, a significant amount of memory is needed to archive the backup and upload it to Dropbox.

    I posed a fair bit of info on the core of the problem here - http://www.mikeyd.com.au/2011/05/08/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox-0-7-1/

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Thanks for the feedback.

    These issues should, hopefully, be fixed in version 0.8.

    In Version 0.8 I got the same error:
    [04-Jun-2011 05:08:08] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 18861743 bytes) in /home/stefanpr/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox/Dropbox_API/API.php on line 331

    You are on the right way because from 5 backups attempts one have succeeded :)

    Gday stefanprodan,

    How big is the largest file inside your PHP installation?
    How many files are of this size?

    Cheers,
    Mikey

    Hello Mikey,

    The largest file on my blog has 18MB... maybe you can add an exclusion list to your backup module, so I can exclude files or folders.

    Gday stefanprodan,

    An exclusion list is already in the works and will be in the 0.9 release scheduled for the 1st of July.

    I will let you know when I have a stable version you can test.

    Cheers,
    Mikey
