    When clicking link to download backups, receiving 502 gateway error.

    is there anyway to automatically email the backups?

    Hello,

    How big is your backup ?

    It is not hard to implement emailing, however not many services can accept large files. Also, you must be sure your server is able to send the archive.

    Are you going to restore the archive on another server or just want to keep it in email ? Because I’m thinking of implementing server-to-server restoration so you don’t need to download/upload archive, and that would probably be a better and safer solution for cloning sites

    WBR,

    945.27M take it the file(s) are not being zipped? If I can just d/l the back up files would be good.

    serve to server would definitely be cool!

    The files and database are gzipped inside the archive with the maximum compression level. Your file is big enough, so it is just your server is not being able to send the file to you in 300-600 seconds (depending on webserver configuration).

    Don’t you have FTP access to the server ? In case you use FTP client, make sure you set transfer type to Binary by default, instead of ASCII, because ASCII transfer is known to break archives.

    Please let me know if you need any further assistance

    WBR,

    Thank you sir for your time, input and energy.

    Yes, I do have access to FTP, but in the grand scheme of things it causes me some concerns and does not give me a ‘warm and fuzzy’ feeling leaving me with a sense of protection. Perhaps it is ‘control’ (or the lack there of) of not having the files in my possession on my own network LOL

    Shall take the information you provided and see how to incorporate it into my world and make for my peace of mind LOL

    Truly do enjoy and appreciate your plugin! Need to open another ticket for another error though that I have encountered a couple of times.

    Thank you
