Works but getting tired of the upgrade visit page
By ,

Yes, BackWPup works however the many upgrades with the:

"You have activated or updated BackWPup. Please check this page."

message is getting really tiresome. Please turn this off. It is becoming like the boy who called wolf.

How do I run BackWPup without MySQLi?
By , for WP 3.5.1

Hi. (I'm a non-native speaker of English. Please forgive my English.)

I upgraded BackWPup to 3.0.2 from 2.1.17, and "No MySQLi extension found" errors occurred while backing up WP database.

I'm using web hosting service without MySQLi extension installed.
I asked the hosting provider to install MySQLi, but they replied that for now, they're not planning it.

If possible, I'd like to keep using BackWPup.

Version 3.02 doesn't work. I've tried numerous times to run a backup and it just won't work.

It tells me that the backup has started but I get no indication that anything is happening. I never get an update in the logs and of course I never get the backup file.

Why would you change something that was working perfectly? Don't get it.
