Support » Plugin: BackUpWordPress » Am I using these codes correctly?

  • Resolved christogeretz


    I’ve got a couple GB worth of photos I’d NOT like to backup every day, but can’t seem to get the code right. Could you help me get it fixed?

    I inserted this into wp-config.php:

    define( 'HMBKP_EXCLUDE', '/wp-content/uploads/folder' );
    define( 'HMBKP_EMAIL', '' );

    What do I have wrong? Thanks for your help!

    What are you trying to exclude.

    Is there a folder in your uploads directroy called ‘folder’?

    If not – and you want to exclude the entire uploads directory – you can just remove that part of the code.

    Other than that – it looks OK.

    Looks like that worked (added a ‘/’ after “folder”):

    Glad that worked.

    I would recommend downloading the backup – extracting it – and just checking exactly what has been backed up.

    We will include some more detailed instructions for using the exclude option in the next release.

    If you like the plugin – we would be grateful if you could rate it.
